Monday, March 31, 2008

*Update 2/5/09 – Now Closed*
We thought we’d check out Totally Baked Totally Baked on opening day. The well designed space was filled with people on a rainy day, so good job to the publicist. They seem to be working out some logistical kinks as the wait was quite long, and Melinda’s (Lon’s co-worker) order got […]

Maurizio Update

Friday, December 21, 2007

I’ve given Maurizio glowing reviews in the past, but I just went again recently and I was a bit disappointed. The food wasn’t bad but I just wasn’t as impressed this time. My entree of jumbo shrimp were regular sized shrimp. With only four pieces of shrimp, it looked more like an appetizer on […]

Thursday, August 30, 2007

With a name like, It’s a Dominican ThingIt’s a Dominican Thing, you really expect the restaurant to represent authentic Dominican food.
