So far, from my 2 visits, for dinner, no reservations, have been pretty great.  It’s not just the food, though the oysters were delicious and small, like I like them...but it was also the atmosphere.  It’s something about the dim, cozy lighting in there that makes it really conducive for the 2 date nights we had there.  By the way, I suggest making reservations because though neither do the days we happen to have them, we were able to eat, but once at the bar, which wasn’t so bad.  However, the dining area is better.  Something about this place reminds of a ski lodge.  If they only had a fireplace it would be perfect!  Anyway, I love ski lodges so I’m a little nostalgic, but anyway, I enjoyed my food, the atmosphere and service very much.  Definitely go try this one!

I have to say, our meal was kind of a creative and fancy adult breakfast.  Not the kind of place to go if you’re craving waffles and pancakes.  Venezuelan inspired.  Everything is quite beautiful and tasty.  My pals said the coffee was really good.  Love the decor of the restaurant.  I did like the creativity, but it’s not a regular breakfast kind of place to me.  I heard they have a fabulous lunch and just recently opened for dinner...which I would be more inclined to return for.   Definitely an interesting place.

I thought this place was so cute.  Same owners as B&B Butchers and across the street.  Much more casual than its older sibling, and each dining area is intimate and quaint.  I love it!  It feels like a small mom and pop.  I had the grilled cheese, decadent.  I saved half of it and devoured the other half later.  Everything heavy, but delicious.  I’d really like to take my husband by, he would love it.

Was I ready for some social time!  Hello tasty little drink and interesting new and very mature bar...not quite what I was expecting but glad I could have my much needed girl time anyway, thanks Jessie. Great for a quiet night or romantic date w/ hopes of lots of💋💋💋😄

Lights in the Heights

Always an annual favorite event!  You know with 2 little ones, it’s hard to get out regularly, but when we do Lights in the Heights is always one of our must dos!  And everyone we introduce to it absolutely love it.  We did have one bad experience, from that we have learned, no middle schoolers please.  They’re in that too cool for school stage when really that age group is the least interesting...haha.

I am disappointed.  The place is cute, but small and very casual.  They have extra seating at the Bierhaus.  Let the complaining commence...first off they gave us the wrong food.  I ordered the pretzel grilled cheese and egg scramble and this first photo of food came out.  Then they send out another 2 sandwiches which still were not what I ordered and to make it worse, the food was cold and not that good.  I had a very poor experience, and I can undoubtedly say I probably will not be returning here...not trying to be harsh, just realistic.

3rd Time is...

not a charm at Emmaline.  Why o why...this place breaks my heart!  It is the cutest restaurant and they can't seem to put out a good meal.  I am constantly disappointed, why do I come back here?  Because it's so cute!!

Today was the burger and myself and the 3 others all agree, it was ok.  I actually did not finish even half, just wasn't in the mood to eat something that was not satisfying my very little desire to eat this meal.  It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't worth the effort.  It was actually kind of a sloppy burger too.  Too bad this place is so cute, I just love the atmosphere.  And the staff is really great!  I was told they had a change in kitchen, I hope they get their food act together soon!

I keep forgetting to take a picture of the food, so excited to eat and engrossed with company.  

Ok, 4th times a charm...next time, promise promise! 

La Madeleine

So a friend of mine wanted to go here and my first reaction was like 😳 ...but I decided to be a good sport and go anyway and that's when I found my La Madeleine waffles ❤️.  I have been back 4x since...over the course of a month and half...I have to say best waffles ever!So yummy.  Everything else I've tried is eh...not that I've tried much.  But the croissant is ok.  Eggs are eggs.  And the crowd is...mature.I do love me those waffles!

So I made it to the location near target to get my La Madeleine waffles.  I have to say, I think I like this location better.  Lots of sunlight and a fireplace, not cozy but plenty of room to find a spot.  And I ate me some of my favorite waffles!

It's a nice place but overall, I wasn't that impressed with the food.The atmosphere is nice, we sat on the outdoor balcony on the second floor.Girl star dressed very sexy, a little too sexy for lunch in my opinion...anyway, decent option.

This was an amazing experience!  I’m not a octopus kind of person, actually I would probably say I would never eat it, but it was absolutely delicious here, DELICIOUS!  We also had the Ribeye which was amazing.  The atmosphere is great, the bar takes up more real estate in this place than it did in the previous restaurant, Triniti, which is a much better layout.

Anyway, really nice restaurant, an Israeli Steakhouse, which was a new concept to me...but it was amazing!  Try the octopus!  Be brave, you’ll be glad you did!

I didn’t quite love it as much as I had hoped.  It was a very cute restaurant, fresh and hip feel but the food was very eh.  It’s a pick your entries and protein kind of food, if you want more than a salad.  I selected the Mac & Cheese, Quinoa & Rice and the Tofu.  Everything I selected was ok except the Tofu, I love tofu and I couldn’t finish mine.  I can safely say I will never select that again.  I do want to go back and try something else.  Matt ordered the spinach, avocado and broccoli with the Tofu too, and his was allnok too.  He said he didn’t mind the Tofu so much, but definitely didn’t think it was great. Anyway, I was disappointed, he was t expecting that much so he wasn’t impressed nor disappointed.  My overall experience was very confusing because a friend of mine said it was so good.  I would have to respectfully disagree, at this point.  Cute place though, lots of chicks!
