Don't let anyone fool you: choosing the perfect place to take an out of town guest requires planning. It may sound easy, but you're looking for something more than just an excellent meal. While the restaurant has to serve knockout food (that's a given), it simultaneously has to showcase something unique about the city. More

It's hard not to immediately like a pastry chef who, after being asked if he personally likes the dish in question, answers with an enthusiastic "Yeah! Have you had it?" I have indeed had it, and written something of a love letter to it, even. More

Sugar Rush: Pain Perdu from Nellcôte

Sugar Rush Lindsey Becker 3 comments

It may not look like French toast, but Nellcôte calls it Pain Perdu ($18 as part of their prix fixe brunch menu).
