Home Grown is just wonderful. I can’t say it any better than there website does:
Denver has upped it’s game big time on the food scene. So many great places to check out. Recently I went to Jelly Cafe. Was absolutely wonderful. It is in the cool Capitol Hill Neighborhood. It’s casual with a great feel. The service is great and friendly. Everything is scratch made and delicious. I just loved it. I had the Veggie Benedict – Marinated roasted portobello mushroom, griddled tomato slices and sautéed spinach on toasted sour dough baguette, topped with two deliciously poached eggs and hollandaise. Wonderful. And they are open for lunch too.
When in Maine the thing to do is eat lobster rolls. They do them right up there and the lobsters come from those waters. I love them. They are simple and tasty. I mean, it’s white bread, lobster and either mayo or hot butter. There’s not much to it so you would think that wherever you go they are going to be the same but The Clam Shack is a cut above. They taste much better and I am not sure why. I have heard they have a process that they use that separates them from the rest but all I know is they are delicious. I got mine with hot butter. And this place is a counter service little dive in downtown Kennebunkport. Check it out. You will be happy you did.
The Tides Beach Club is a wonderful little hotel on Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport, Maine which is a beautiful, quaint little seaside town. Just off the lobby is their wonderful restaurant with the same name. Great, cozy atmosphere and delicious seafood. I could have eaten the fresh, local oysters all night long!
Eventide Oyster Co. is one of those places I will go to every time I am in Portland, Maine. Either for lunch or dinner. It is that good. In fact, it’s one of my top 5 best meals I have ever had. The lobster rolls and oysters are out of this world and super fresh. And Portland is a cute port town on Casco Bay and it hosts a ton of very very good restaurants. Enjoy.
Portland, Maine is a port town on Costco Bay and it is a beautiful cool little town that has become home to many incredible restaurants that are considered some of the best in the country. If you are a foodie then this is a must destination although be prepared for cold winters. It is also home to one of the best bakeries in the country. Standard Baking Co. is fantastic and is a 2017 James Beard Award Semifinalist. Everything is really good but the croissant is a must. Handcrafted and baked throughout the day in a 12-ton, stone deck oven, you’ll find traditional French baguettes, hearty German Vollkornbrot, fragrant Focaccia, and all-organic Miche, made from 100% Maine grown and milled whole grains. Hand-rolled croissants, pain au chocolat, brioche, and scones, are prepared in plain view in our open production bakery and often served still warm from our ovens. Everything we make embodies our commitment to artisanal methods, natural ingredients and delicious food.
Portland, Maine is a small town with tons of charm and really good food. It sits on Casco Bay and is just beautiful. It is impressive how many great restaurants there are here. Recently my wife and I went to Street & Co. It’s a simple joint with upscale preparations of local fish in a rustic & snug bistro on a cobblestone alley. Really charming. We had the Lobster Diavolo for two. A shallow cauldron of mussels, clams, calamari, and a whole lobster, split down the middle on top of a bed of linguini. I honestly think it is the best meal I have ever had. I would move to Portland just so I could be near that dish and knowing I could eat it daily. Holy crap. Delicious!
Nothing fancy here but if you are looking for a good local breakfast or lunch joint in Sarasota then hit up the Toasted Mango Cafe. It’s in the Rosemary District which is up and coming and the food is simple and tasty. The staff is super nice and the place is filled with locals. I will be back.
Welcome to a wonderful invention. Putting two of my favorite foods together. Burgers and ramen. Yes. The Ramenburger is here! Well, in New York at least. You can find Ramen Burger in a few locations. There is a permanent location in Queens and a food cart that is in Williamsburg every Saturday starting April 1st. And Every Sunday starting April 1st Prospect Park and every Saturday and Sunday at the Winter Flea Market. They are all called Smorgasburg and all in Brooklyn. I have to be honest. I have not had one. Yet. But I have talked to friends who have and I am willing to go out on a limb and put this on my blog because this picture looks too good! Go get one!!!
Hudson Clearwater is one of my go to’s when in Manhattan. I try and go every time I am in town. It’s a local joint in the Village which is a great neighborhood. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food is excellent always and anytime. I love the feeling of this place too. It’s small, intimate, not fancy and I never want to leave. You just can’t lose here. Enjoy.
