Pigalle’s New Bar Menu Goes Asian

Ever since discovering Pigalle during the Lamb Pro-Am last year, we have become somewhat obsessed. On any given week night it is not at all uncommon for us and a group of friends to be drinking and indulging in Pigalle’s bar menu of the moment. Between seasonal dishes and testing the waters in different cuisines, you can always expect something fresh and interesting at the bar that is completely different from the dining room menu. The new summer bar menu … read more

Food Porn Friday | Everything at Marliave

Today we have a very special food porn Friday, a cheesy triple threat if you will. Given that French eatery Marliave is a three minute walk from my office, it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite places to over-indulge on my lunch break every once in a while. Not only do they have an entire menu dedicated to cheese, but almost every dish on the menu incorporates the ingredient in some way. Whether it’s oozing out of a croque madame….¬† … read more

Food Porn Friday | Bucatini with Tomato and Bacon | Founding Farmers

After Jacki’s rave reviews about Founding Farmers, I had to check it out when I was in DC a few weeks ago. Now I know why she’s obsessed, everything on the menu has bacon in it. Even the cocktails! My pasta was no exception…Bucatini with Tomato and Bacon, served with a poached egg on top. And you all know how I feel about poached egg on pasta anything. Really fucking good. Sorry, but it’s Friday, I’m slightly hungover¬†and I really … read more

Food Porn Friday | Eggs Florentine with Hollandaise

For Easter my friends and I got together for a homemade brunch complete with Eggs Florentine, HOLLANDAISE, asparagus, BACON and mimosas. (Yes I only capitalize things that are bad for me.) We had never made poached eggs or hollandaise from scratch so we decided to try something new. We used Ina Garten’s Hollandaise recipe because, well, her book was available for easy reference and she uses a blender. That Barefoot Contessa knows what’s up! No rapid whisking here. The recipe … read more

Making Burgers at the Bristol Lounge

Last week Meesh and I hit the jackpot of all jackpots for burger lovers. If you love burgers, and you live in Boston, then by now you know all about the famed burger at the Four Season’s Bristol lounge. The originator of pricey beef-patties, the Bristol Lounge plans to celebrate National Burger month by featuring a different signature burger each day throughout the month of May. That means 31 burgers in 31 days. To help get the creative ideas flowing, … read more

Food Porn Friday | French Toast Wrapped in Bacon | O.E.G.

Behold….. Last time my family and I went to visit my younger sister in DC (where she is currently mastering her collegiate career) we decided to dine at the infamous Old Ebbit Grill which is where we discovered these little gems: french toast wrapped in bacon. I’d never seen anything like it before. Everyone loves bacon wrapped dates, bacon wrapped scallops, bacon wrapped anything really, but french toast wrapped with bacon? Genius! Considering it’s one of the oldest restaurants in … read more

Mike & Patty’s | Breakfast Sandwich Award | Bacon & Egg, Fancy

  I can’t believe it has taken me this long to write a post on Mike & Patty’s. They are quite literally the best breakfast sandwich place EVER. I feel bad saying that because I am always picking favorites, and realistically it’s only one sandwich in particular the I am beyond obsessed with. That’s not to say that all their sandwiches aren’t great, which they are. I’ve tried countless specials they continue to add (which I can never keep up … read more
