With two chefs in the house, we don't often go out to restaurants. When we do getting our attention can be a challenge. I do have a few favorite restaurant finds that I wanted to share with you but I will warn you that I am not as verbose as Rose. Also, there are several others that could have made the list but I will save that for an old stand-bys post. Cheers!
Patrice Patissier - Montreal
Patrice Demers is one of the treasures of Montreal and we wanted to see if the legends were true. They were absolutely well deserved, from entrees to the two dessert courses we were in heaven for the night.
Lupa - New York
On a recent trip to New York, I discovered the octopus at Lupa, incredible is an understatement. The sommelier was wonderfully helpful, the food divine, and the company was a pleasure. The perfect evening.
Food Dance - Kalamazoo, Michigan
A little treasure in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Food dance is locally sourced and always delicious.
With an attached food shop and cooking courses it is developing a strong food culture in Southwest Michigan.
Le Pichet - Seattle
Le Pichet is worth the cross country flight. It is classically French with a hint of Seattle. Don't get me wrong there was little that I ate in Seattle that I didn't love but I would plan my next trip around the breakfast at Le Pichet.
If you have any recommendations for me to try I'm not shy and I am will to expand my list.
