Wicked Spoon: TidBit of the Day




After a late evening (or an all nighter), you get hungry. Or at least I do. What better than a weekend brunch? I’m not usually a buffet fan, but the Wicked Spoon in Las Vegas, Nevada, is an exception. A medley of traditional, American brunch, and specialties from the American South, China, Italy, and Japan […]

Jaleo Vegas: TidBit of the Day




I’ve been to Jaleo in Bethesda, MD several times, but finally made it to their newer location in Vegas at the Cosmopolitan.

Especially for those late nights…or rather, early dinner before […]

China Poblano: TidBit of the Day




José Andrés of ThinkFoodGroup scored a winner with China Poblano, located at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, NV. A blend of the best from China and Mexico, you watch tortillas and dumplings being made fresh and right in front of you. I didn’t have anything that I didn’t absolutely love.

I’ve never really been the “Vegas”-type, so figured a mini-reunion with two dear college friends would be the perfect excuse to get there. I had to first ask, what do people in Vegas wear? Well, it quickly became evident that the […]

Just Like Heaven




Everyone has their own haven of deliciousness, that one spot where they reached food nirvana. For me, that spot is a little restaurant in Florence called La Giostra. Just thinking about it makes me crave fresh Carpaccio, rosemary scented rack of lamb and bold red wine. Unfortunately, I don’t get to my little slice of […]
