A Tale of Two Restaurants

With apologies to Mr. Dickens… “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was …

Vue on 30A- A Restaurant Report

30A is a scenic detour off of State Route 98 in the Florida panhandle. It runs along the shore and has precious beach front villages strung along it like charms on a Pandora bracelet. Normally we spend more time on the eastern side of 30A in communities like Rosemary and Seacrest, but we decided to …

Southside Grill- A Restaurant Report

Norm was right. We all want a place where everybody knows our name. Somewhere where you can say, “Bring me the usual” and they don’t stare at you like you have two heads. I have finally found that place. Bill Darsinos has the restaurant biz in his blood, along with a little bit of Ouzo. …

Firefly- A Restaurant Report

What’s in a sign? I don’t normally expect a lot from restaurants with neon signs in strip malls. Consider it a blind spot. I overcame that issue to visit Firefly in Panama City Beach, Florida on the recommendation of several people. The approach is a bit strange with the main Firefly sign and then a …

Sardinia Enoteca- A Restaurant Report

OK, I will be honest. I booked a brunch at the italian restaurant Sardinia Enoteca with my beautiful and very patient wife because it was a 1000 point reservation on OpenTable. I think we have already established that I can be bought. Sardinia is an island just off the coast of Southern Italy, so I …

The Southern- A Restaurant Report

The Southern is an extension of the restaurant and catering company of Tom Morales. With brands like Loveless Cafe and Saffire and his own TomKats catering company it’s not like he has to prove anything to anyone. To me though, the Southern looks to be his way of making a statement. It is an intriguing …

Mack and Kate’s- A Restaurant Report

20120714-234353.jpg

Mack and Kate’s is tucked on the corner of a multi-use area just past the intersection of Moore’s Lane and Franklin Road. Condos are cheek to jowl with restaurants and retail and it is all wrapped up with a bow. Of course that does mean that there is a lot going on and not quite …

Firefly Grille- A Restaurant Report

20120628-190511.jpg

With a tag line like “Green Hills’ Friendliest and Funkiest Little Neighborhood Joint” I suppose that I should have had my expectations well tempered for what was to come. A “joint” in this sense almost always means that the food outpaces the ambience. I was not quite prepared for the inside of Firefly to look …

Bon Femme Restaurant Report

20120602-112930.jpg

Apologies for the blurry outside photos but the iPhone is still not the best choice for night pictures! I did want to give you a vibe of the area. Who knew that Valparaiso, Indiana (population 31K) had a bohemian, little downtown area? It comes complete with European style spas, bistros, clothing boutiques, jewelry shops and …

Decca A Restaurant Report

20120502-212310.jpg

An evening in Louisville gave me the opportunity to try a new place to dine. Decca is not just new to me, but truly new to the area. They have been open since March 15th of 2012 and are headed up by a pair of chefs from San Francisco. Since SF is one of my …
