There’s only so much one can expect when venturing to a restaurant with a sexy, mud-flap pin-up on it’s windows. My first impressions were wrong about Yo Rita. Then again, they were right.
On the last day of her visit, my sister (who lives in Boston) suggested that we go to Lidia’s for brunch. Wait, Lidia’s in the Strip has brunch? They do indeed.
Finally, I made it a point to visit Monterey Bay on one of my last vacation days of the year. Ryan and I visited the renowned seafood restaurant for lunch on a Monday afternoon.
The closest pub to where I live is Molly Brannigans, a Traditional Irish Pub located in Uptown Mt. Lebanon. When you enter Molly’s, you immediately feel warmth (especially on cold December nights like when I went to visit).
Question: What do you do when Chef David Racicot opens a restaurant in Oakmont? You make a reservation. Friday night, we made it down to the opening of Notion, Chef Racicot’s new eating establishment in Oakmont, PA.
It wasn’t easy getting a reservation at Salt of the Earth, so when I finally secured a spot for last Thursday evening, I was excited. We arrived at 8pm sharp, and were greeted by a very friendly hostess. As she was checking on our table, I looked around, and was extremely impressed with the layout of the restaurant.
I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t like cupcakes – cake, frosting (buttercream), and a soft wrapper that hold all of that goodness together. Cupcakes have been around for decades, but recently there’s been a serious surge in their popularity.
