Toast Two

Monday, September 29, 2008

For our last breakfast in Chicago, our plan was to go to Pasticerria Natalina, but alas, they were closed. A bakery not open before 12 noon? What’s up with that? We were starving and headed to my list of back-ups and decided on Toast Two Toast Two. We loved their signage, and the inside is […]

Meli Cafe & Juice Bar

Saturday, September 27, 2008

This morning, we went to Meli Cafe & Juice Bar, had one of the best breakfasts ever, and I’m debating going back tomorrow. They had so many awesome things on the menu that if I lived in Chicago, I would be a loyal regular.
They make their own marmalades… I loved both the strawberry and apricot, […]

Walker Brothers The Original Pancake House

Friday, September 26, 2008

Several years ago my family and I attempted to share breakfast together at Walker Brothers The Original Pancake House in Wilmette, IL Walker Brothers. After a fiasco there (long story) we ended up elsewhere and I didn’t get my pancakes. During this trip, it was critical that we eat some of those famous […]

Bagel Boss Catering

Sunday, April 13, 2008

Sabrina, our niece, had her Jewish Baby Naming Party today and the spread was amazing. Kasi (Lon’s sister) hired Bagel Boss Bagel Boss to do the catering. She ordered the gold package plus an omelet station and the 50+ guests were constantly raving about the food.
Let’s start with the fish: lox, smoked whitefish, pickled herring, […]

Borgata Buffet

Monday, March 17, 2008

After a night of partying, mostly at Mixx, Borgata Buffet Borgata Buffet seemed like the way to end the weekend. We were mostly in sweats, hoodies, and sneakers, half awake, and dehydrated. I’m a little prejudice against buffets but for about $23 after tax, I was satisfied with what they offered and I give them […]

I’m so excited that Danal Danal moved to my neighborhood, about two blocks from where I live. I never went to the previous location so I can’t compare but the food we had for brunch today was good. Lon enjoyed his burger, which came with salad and the thin fries I like. The fries were […]

Jules Bistro

Sunday, February 10, 2008

I went to Jules Bistro Jules Bistro many years ago and I can’t remember at all what I ate. Today, I went for brunch at Jules Bistro and I’ll probably forget about it soon too. So, I probably won’t be back but I don’t necessarily mean that you shouldn’t go. Let me explain.There was nothing […]

Norma’s at Le Parker Meridien

Wednesday, December 26, 2007

Ahh…Norma’s Norma’s, the famous breakfast place. I think it’s been hyped up so much that it couldn’t have met my expectations. It seemed like the perfect place to go during the holiday season. It was almost a touristy thing to do but since I went to see the tree at Rockefeller Center yesterday, I guess […]

Bouley Bouley is one of my favorite restaurants, and also one of Lon’s, but this was our first time there together. Everything about this place is wonderful. They have lovely decor that includes fresh flowers on every table. They use high quality ingredients to make beautifully presented food that is always delicious. The top notch […]

Brunch at Taco Taco

Sunday, November 25, 2007

My friend Stephanie introduced me to some new running buddies who are actually more in to brunch than running but hey, can’t blame them. We met at Engineer’s Gate and ran the inner loop (4 miles) in Central Park so that we could justify our brunch so soon after Thanksgiving feasting. Karen recommended Taco Taco […]
