We generally frequent the same few restaurants when we go out, so I wanted to make it a point to try somewhere new. We have been to the other restaurants in the complex, but had never been to Takara. While they restaurant is Japanese and serves a nice variety of sushi options, it was nice […]

Leah and I met up with fellow food blogger Fiona, from Gourmet Pigs, for lunch at Poke City. Poke is blowing up on the restaurant scene and I couldn’t wait to check it out. Leah had been before and Fiona had been to a different Poke restaurant – I just wanted to see what those […]

It’s just like me to go to a party where they are serving complimentary drinks and passed appetizers and go to the restaurant next door and spend all my money. The Godfrey Hotel recently turned 1 and we were at the party! I had been wanting to try out Ruka, and hey, since we were […]

When we were in New York, we decided to meet up with an old co-worker of mine for sushi. With 4 locations, we met her at the Tribeca location – but Sushi of Gari can also be found on 78th Street, Columbus Ave. and West 46th Street. We arrived around 7 and the place was […]

They have teamed up with Executive […]

Mr Sushi is located on Harvard Street in Coolidge Corner. Even though they are a Japanese restaurant, they have some delicious Korean options. The restaurant is very casual and almost all the menu items are under $20. We start with the gyoza ($6) that we have pan fried. The meat and veggie dumplings do not […]

Shiki is a small Japanese restaurant located just off of Harvard St. in Coolidge Corner. It has probably been on my “to visit” list for 5 years….glad we finally made it! We arrived at a great time and we were seated right away – there was a bit of a wait as we came close […]

Someone at work had been raving about this place, so one weekend afternoon we decided to try it out. The restaurant has a few other diners, but for the most part is pretty quiet. The service was good, our order was taken and our food came out quickly. Rising Sun ($10.95) On top: spicy tuna, […]

Every time I come here, we struggle with the service – mainly the hostess. Most recently, we arrive for a late lunch, with a reservation. We are 15 minutes early, but they say that they can’t seat us. As we look around and see half a dozen open tables, it just doesn’t make any sense. […]
