May ’14: Drinks & Dishes

In an effort to track my favorites restaurants and bars throughout the city (the grown-up in me decided it was time to clean up my hilariously large spreadsheet in a way that was easier to share and well…organized), I’ve decided to start a monthly list of spots that I’ve visited and loved.

May D&DMy mission is two-fold: first, my biggest hope is to offer those of you who enjoy eating out, an easy way to pick your next culinary adventure. Second, I plan to, oh so selflessly, justify my outrageous food budget on the basis that I am improving the lives of others. Noble, I’m aware.

Disclaimer: if food and beverage consumption is not directly correlated to your overall happiness, please feel free to stop reading now.

Some spots will be new (to the city or to me) and many will be old favorites. I hope you enjoy, eat well and if nothing else, find this as an excuse to dine & drink in good company!
