Review: Daybreak

Review: Daybreak

On Saturday, Steve, Mary, Abby, Tony (the newlyweds), Terry and I met up at Daybreak in Hyde Park before seeing Terry’s show in Lebanon. We had originally planned to do breakfast or brunch at The Golden Lamb, but their hours are really weird: breakfast is […]

Review: Dilly Deli

Review: Dilly Deli

I love Mariemont. I also love Get In Mah Belly‘s post about Mariemont. It’s very true: it’s so white bread, Wonder is inspired by this little burg. It’s also quaint and cute, and as much of a city girl as I am, I often miss […]

Review: Via Vite

Review: Via Vite

The theme for this week seems to be “Restaurants where we’ve had small meals at but really want to write up right.” Or maybe we just wanted lots of OpenTable points. My motives are not always altruistic. Terry and I have been to Via Vite […]

What’s your favourite table? Oh, goodness. This is hard. I love the hustle and bustle of Katz’s in NYC; I love this one particular bistro around the corner from Notre Dame on rue St. Michel in Paris (I can’t remember the name, but I’d know […]
