As you may know, we get together with our friends, the Diamonds, every Saturday for brunch and for the past year we have sampled almost everything in the city. We like places that offer both savory and sweet items, Michael must have vegetarian gravy and I really enjoy mimosas. Sometimes we will sacrifice some of those items and we don’t mind if the brunch is … Continue reading Even More Saturday Brunches!
Fall is the season for comfort food and what could be more comforting than a cheesy, gooey, buttery grilled cheese?

I just love them and since it is officially October and going to be cold very soon I want to introduce you to some of the … Continue reading Grilled Cheese Please!

We took our brunch club to Avenues Bistro in Brookside this past Saturday and had a truly great experience. Menu items are very reasonably priced at $6.99 with some at $9.99.

My friend Diane and I met for dinner at Luigi’s in the historic liberty square. I love Italian food but I am often disappointed especially after having traveled in Italy. The restaurant was fairly small but nicely decorated complete with white tablecloths and a wine bar. The bread and oil they brought out was just okay… I prefer crusty Italian bread and these were softer … Continue reading Luigi’s in Liberty
