reviewed Pier 23 Cafe. August 01, 2011
Pier 23 Cafe
As a San Francisco Bay Area native, I've been hearing about the wonders of Pier 23 Cafe for years now.  From the outdoor seating, to the view of the bay, the live music, the beer, and the food. …
reviewed The Alembic. April 09, 2011
The Alembic
A few months ago, a San Francisco Gilt City deal popped up with a pretty cool sounding deal -- a three course meal with custom created off-the-menu cocktail pairings at The Alembic, a bar in the Haight-Ashbury …

Bistro Liaison
This Valentine's Day, my Valentine and I decided to descend upon Bistro Liaison to add a little French twist to our V-Day.  Located on Shattuck Avenue in between downtown Berkeley and the infamous …
reviewed Suppenkuche. October 31, 2010
If you're ever in San Francisco (or are lucky enough to live within its vicinity like yours truly!), then you must visit Suppenkuche in Hayes Valley.  Especially when it's Oktoberfest.  …

Mint Leaf
By now, most Berkelieans probably know that there's a somewhat upscale fusion Indian bistro in the Gourmet Ghetto by the name of Mint Leaf, but did you know that they have an awesome late night menu?  …

posted in Secret Berkeley
Sufficient Grounds
Sufficient Grounds has been around for a bit over 20 years, since 1989 (almost as old as I am!).  The ownership may have changed over the years, but the location and menu, for the most part, have …
reviewed Ad Hoc. January 03, 2010
Ad Hoc
When I first found out about Ad Hoc shortly after it opened in late 2006, I bookmarked it and labeled it "Thomas Keller's 'budget gourmet' restaurant" with the intention of trying it very soon.  …
reviewed Sashi Sushi + Saké Lounge. September 05, 2009
posted in MBlocal
Exterior View
Being more a fan of traditionally made sushi, I tend not to dig Japanese fusion joints too much, especially since most are really just gimmicky and overpriced.  However, for Sashi, I'm going to have …
reviewed Boulevard. July 20, 2009
A few months ago, a friend invited me out to lunch in the Financial District of San Francisco.  "So do you want to go to Boulevard or Cosmopolitan?  Both are equidistant from my office …
reviewed The Café at Chez Panisse. July 05, 2009
The Café at Chez Panisse
Unbeknownst to most people (except the locals!), Chez Panisse actually has two parts to it.  There's the famed Michelin starred (one star in both 2006 and 2007) restaurant downstairs, ya know, the …
reviewed French Laundry. June 01, 2009
French Laundry
A few weeks ago, I got a text message from one of my best friends in Florida, Lyta, asking, "Should I make reservations at French Laundry?", my immediate reaction was, "No, it's too …
reviewed Caddy's On The Beach. May 23, 2009
Most restaurants are "No shirt.  No shoes.  No service", but this place is "No shirt.  No shoes.  No problem!"  I love it!  They even played that Kenny Chesney song.     …
reviewed Shalimar. February 27, 2009
Shalimar is a chain of Indian/Pakistani restaurants in Northern California.  The one that I frequent is on Jones St in San Francisco.  So this Shalimar isn't the classiest restaurant in the …
reviewed Monstah Lobstah. February 25, 2009
Monstah Lobstah
Of all the restaurants that I've been to in Tampa, Monstah Lobstah has gotta have the blandest food of them all, AND THAT'S A GOOD THING!  It's really refreshing not to have a meal that's chalked …

posted in Secret Berkeley
Gordo Taqueria
Gordo and I go way, waaay back.  They were my introduction to Mexican food that wasn't Taco Bell, and I've been hooked since!  They've actually been around since 1977, but I only discovered …
reviewed Blondie's Pizza. December 31, 2008
Blondie's and I have had so much history together!  I remember back in the day when they were just a narrow, dark, dingy, stuffy little pizza shop in San Francisco, yet there were still lines out …
reviewed Berryism. December 31, 2008
Wow, the one tart froyo place in Tampa!      I've been to dozens of froyo places, and Berryism has got to be the least tart tart frozen yogurt that I've ever had.  The original …
reviewed Mahuffer. December 18, 2008
I don't even know how to label this place.  It isn't quite tiki-islandish, hippie, punk, nor is it country.  Maybe a fusion of all those.  And then some.  It comes off as kind of crude, …
reviewed EVOS. December 15, 2008
Green fast food?  What a concept!      After viewing EVOS' website, I thought, "Wow, this place sounds awesome", so I had to check out the South Tampa branch when I …
reviewed Chipotle. December 14, 2008
Didn't anyone get the memo?  McDonalds hasn't had anything to do with Chipotle in years!  Just wanted to get that out of the way.      When I first visited Chipotle, for …
