Get in my belly!

I think it’s time I got back to blogging and what better way to start than with a list (I love lists)? Not only do I love lists, but I love food. I spend most of my day either eating or thinking about eating, so it seems only natural to have a restaurant list. I’ve tried to be as thorough as possible (food is no joke, people!), but I’m sure I’ve missed a few and I’m definitely open to suggestions, so if you notice a great restaurant hasn’t made the cut, let me know!

 I realize this list is insane. I will potentially never actually complete it, but the goal is to one day say that I’ve checked all these places off.

I’ve crossed off the ones I’ve already been to. There are some that I went to a very long time ago (so long that I barely remember them except that they were delicious and I want to go back). I’ve decided to underline anything that I haven’t been to in the last five years (so anything I haven’t been to with le boy?). Honestly, what did I know five years ago? (nothing!)  There are also some places that I cannot reasonably afford (Blowfish, Il Sogno…) right now, but I want to go to someday. (And hey, maybe someone will treat me, hinthint). So, without further ado, here is my wish list:

  1. Tootally random, but I figure that you are the best to help me with this: What do you recommend that is nice, delicious, and fancy to take a friend out for her birthday?? Thank youu!! 🙂

  2. Hey! There are a million amazing places, but right now I'm in love with Anju. It's Korean Tapas. It's the best Tofu I've EVER had. And they gochuchang wings are AMAZING. It's not crazy expensive, but not cheap. It's fun for sharing with friends. Farm is also really cute. Best mac and cheese! All of the pizza places: Famoso, Una, Pulcinella, Without Papers, Double Zero. You can't go wrong with any of them! I love Blue Star Diner too, but it's a bit kitchy (and their brunch is AMAZING, so maybe save it for brunch!)

    Hope that helps!! 🙂
