I love eating out. I view it as such a lovely way to spend time with people and to just catch up over a meal and some wine. In Food Reviews, I’ll talk about some of my favorite meals and restaurants. Because I live in D.C. and visit Florida frequently, most of my reviews will be from those areas. If you have suggestions of places or things to try, let me know! (Also, this blog started out as solely a mac’n’cheese blog, so most of my earlier reviews will focus on cheesy things….and let’s be real, most of my new review will, too!
Everything on this page will be something that I love, but I will rank how much I love it by using the following system: 3 Bites = can’t live without, 2 Bites = always dream about, 1 Bite = only sometimes dream about. Bottomline: everything is worth eating.

But sadly Woodward Table is closed 😦 Restaurant: Woodward TableLocation: Washington, D.C.Dish: Mac & Cheese This mac & cheese is where.it.is.at. First of all, this restaurant is delicious and I had the mac & cheese years ago.

Restaurant: Ted’s Bulletin Location: Washington, D.C. Dish: Macaroni & Cheese Ted’s Bulletin is always one of my recommendations when visitors come to the city. I love that place – it’s a classic diner-style (but nice) restaurant that is equal parts nostalgia and home-cooking. Often times, I don’t even order the entrees off the menu, insteadContinue reading “Ted’s Bulletin Mac & Cheese – 1 Bite”

Restaurant: Péché Location: Austin, Texas Dish: Classic French Onion Soup This French onion soup was delicious. I’ve always had a love for French onion soup – like an eat-the-cheese-off-the-sides-of-the-dish and dip-chicken-fingers-in-the-broth kind of love. To top it off: I don’t like onions. In fact, I despise them. But I LOVE French onion soup (I justContinue reading “Péché’s French Onion Soup – 2 Bites”
Restaurant: Péché Location: Austin, Texas Dish: Mac and Cheese On a recent work trip to Austin, N.S. and I decided we really needed some cheesy goodness to round out the trip.

Restaurant: Matt’s Italian Location: Jacksonville, Fla. Dish: Baked Ziti I don’t know how they do it, but Matt’s Italian in Jacksonville, Fla. makes the best baked ziti I’ve ever had. I’ve been going to this restaurant since I was a child, and although I moved quite a few years ago, I stop by whenever I’mContinue reading “Baked Ziti – 3 Bites”
