Lunch By the Ocean: Ocean Prime’s Power Lunch

When I hear the world power lunch, I think of a different era.  I think of shoulder pads, suits, a group of men gathered around a dark table and a very big cheque. Today’s power lunch is an entirely different experience.  It has all of the luxe in terms of setting, the meat and potatoes…

Anything But Turkey: Burgers, Hummus, and Spice

We have all had our fill of poultry especially the Thanksgiving turkey variety.

Chain Link: Restaurants Worth Checking Out

In general, I skip a chain restaurant and prefer to go to a small, local independent restaurant whether I’m at home or in traveling to another city.  With social media sources for information such as Yelp, Chowhound, Urbanspoon Zomato, my Facebook feed full of food loving folks, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, I can get a good…

Food, Blogging, and Ordering off the Menu

You sit down, settle into your table, and open a menu to see what story a particular menu is going to tell.  Sometimes it is a short story.  Other times it’s a bit of a Choose Your Own Adventure book. Occasionally it is a lesson in regional gastronomy.  Every once in a while you get…
