Weekend Favorites: Top 3 Restaurant Edition

Posted Feb 20 2011 8:27am

The husband and I are visiting friends this weekend. Going out of town means lots of eating out at new places. Unfortunately this time it doesn’t mean lots of fabulous food.

So instead I’ve been reminiscing about some of my favorite restaurant discoveries over the past year. Here are my top 3:



rioja wine bar

It goes without saying this place has good wine, but who knew the food was simply scrumptious? The tangy spinach artichoke dip stole my heart taste buds.

Tartine Bakery in San Francisco

I was a little nervous about the food after sitting down with my “salad”:

lettuce wedge salad (640x426)

But I had absolutely no reason to worry. This open faced sandwich ranked up there with one of the best I’ve eaten.

Who knew Tartine wasn’t just a baked-good heaven?



By far my favorite restaurant of the year was Quartino in Chicago.

From grilled antipasto to polenta sticks to mouth-watery pizza…

Italian tapas in a beautiful city with great company. What more could a girl ask for? {Besides leftovers!}


One thing I’ve learned? Tapas are the answer to everything.


What’s your favorite restaurant? How do you discover new places to eat when you’re traveling?
