  1. 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…


  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. Kazu Sushi: Change in the Routine + Local Pairing

    Sometimes, I get stuck on things. The same salad for lunch (spinach, berries, goat cheese, walnuts). The same, super comfortable, worn-in leather flats. The same route to work. And the same sushi restaurant. When it comes to food, I’m generally an adventurer. But when it comes to sushi, I tend to stick to my tried-and-true Continue…

  8. Cafe Claude: Alley Dining

    Whenever a friend suggests that we meet up after work to grab dinner at a ‘convenient location,’ it usually means downtown–especially if said dinner were to take place right after work, or with a friend that’s coming into the city via public transportation. I tend to cringe a little–not because there are no restaurants in Continue…

  9. Stellina: Modern Italian Comfort in Pt. Reyes

    Sometimes, you take a wrong turn, and end up hiking twelve miles in five hours on a day when you anticipated hiking for two hours and eating oysters. Oh wait, that hasn’t happened to you? Over the 4th of July weekend, Matt and I decided to do a leisurely 5 mile loop in Pt. Reyes, Continue…

  10. Serpentine: Another Local Gem in the Dogpatch

    There’s something that always seems to pull me into hidden little nooks and crannies. Whether they be alleys–each with unique personalities (boisterous, quiet and cozy, peaceful)–off-the-beaten-path hiking trails, or used bookstores–the ‘diamond in the rough’ always seems to spark my fancy. It’s kind of like that with neighborhoods, too. I know that the Inner Sunset Continue…

  11. Domo: A Sushi Place…To Come Home To + Truffle Winner!

    Sushi is often my feel-good food. I like to go out to sushi when I have something to celebrate, when I want to have a deep conversation with someone, or when I want guaranteed gastronomic satisfaction. After an unfortunate sushi experience in Oakland about a month ago, I’ve been somewhat scared of sushi. I didn’t Continue…
