  1. Bar Crudo: A Sleek Experience

    San Francisco is filled with ‘cute,’ ‘hip,’ ‘sleek,’ restaurants. I’m a sucker for good logo and simplicity–and been eyeing Bar Crudo since before the restaurant made its move to its new (discreet) home on Divisadero. On a street that houses NOPA, it’s probably easy to be overlooked, but this restaurant already had a devoted following Continue…

  2. City Guide: Salta and Tilcara (Argentina)

    Travel Guide: Salta and Tilcara: Part 3 of Our Honeymoon

    I’ve saved the best for last. We loved Buenos Aires and Mendoza, but we LOVED Salta and the surrounding regions. From the moment we stepped off our double decker AndesMar bus (on which we spent 17 hours watching ridiculous straight-to-DVD movies, slept, played bingo, and drank unnecessarily bad wine), we kind of fell for it. Continue…

  3. City Guide: Mendoza, Argentina

    City Guide: Mendoza, Argentina

    After doing some big city touring in Buenos Aires, we jetted off on a plane to Mendoza, the heart and soul of Argentina’s wine country. We grounded ourselves at B&B Plazza Italia, an old home owned by a lovely couple. Located in the center of downtown Mendoza, the B&B definitely had a different vibe from Continue…

  4. City Guide: Buenos Aires, Argentina

    City Guide: Buenos Aires, Argentina

    Why, hello. Hello! It’s been quite the September. On Saturday, September 12, 2009, Matt and I got married. At a beautiful private estate called Casa Vecchia. It was a rough morning–it rained. There was thunder. There was lightening. And then the skies parted, and it was a beautiful sunny day. More on the wedding next Continue…

  5. Two for One: Range + Kokkari Reviews (from the Archives)

    While Matt and I are flying, busing and walking around Argentina, we thought we’d keep you entertained by sharing some of our favorite posts from the archives. I’m digging deep, so deep that some posts are pre-Musical Pairings, so be sure to still check out Matt’s page for refreshing twists on old favorites. Range and Continue…

  6. Nuevo Latino: Destino- A Review from the Archives

    While we’re away on our honeymoon, we’re continuing to bring you delicious recipes and tantalizing restaurant reviews. We’re hoping that you won’t even have time to miss us. Destino has been a rock solid destination for a cozy, vibrant atmosphere and great food at good prices and I wanted to give them a little bit Continue…

  7. Millenium: My Vegetarian Venture

    I have to admit that when I heard that I’d be going to Millenium, a popular vegetarian restaurant, for my friend’s bachelorotte, I couldn’t stop thinking about meat. As much as I love vegetables, and will often cook meat-free meals for myself, I always like to know that I have the option of having meat. Continue…

  8. Maverick Review: A Celebration in the Mission

    Let me just start by saying that there should always be an excuse for a celebration. In this case–a much-anticipated double date with our friends whom we’ve been meaning to casually grab dinner with for months. But, between weddings, weekend getaways, charity walks, business trips and family visits, we just couldn’t find the time. Alas, Continue…

  9. Tartine Bakery: One San Francisco Staple

    There are few things as good on a sunny day as a latte and a selection of delectable desserts at Tartine Bakery in San Francisco. It’s practically a San Francisco institution, and you’ll know by the out-the-door lines that you’ve come to the right place. There are a few things at Tartine that I am Continue…

  10. The Corner, On the Corner

    I hang out in the Mission district of San Francisco a lot. I don’t consider myself a hipster, so I wouldn’t say that I belong there or anything. What really draws me to the Mission is the food–and the coffee. Prior to wedding planning madness, I would spend lazy Sunday afternoons walking around, popping into Continue…

  11. Contigo: Let’s Do It…Together!

    I’ll be honest: I’ve been dying to check out Contigo, the tapas and wine joint that opened in Noe Valley. Contigo’s opening had been highly anticipated–its owner and chef blogged his journey to opening up his first restaurant on his blog, In Praise of Sardines. From reading about it before it even opened, and then Continue…
