I was very glad to get a reservation to try Cosme whilst i was there (I think me being really intense and reserving even before the restaurant opened helped). it far exceeds most Mexicans that I’ve had, and for those who like Mexican food, it should be a must try.

Anyone who knows me knows that i am a sucker for bright pink and 80s music. Therefore the 80s playlist and the bright pink sign at the door of Dirty French had me at Hello
The food is great too, the menu is a spin on traditional french food, with classic dishes with some sort of a twist. I am a big torrisi fan, and was a bit dissapointed with Carbone, but this one left me wanting to come back. This is what we ordered:
my family’s favorite part which i could not partake on (but they were raving about): the bread

I went to marea for New Years Eve, and their fixed dinner menu was spectacular. Here are some of the pictures of what was had:
The only disappointment is that they were so slow with dinner, that we left without dessert so we didnt not get to try it. And most importantly, we saw from instagram that they were giving gift baskets with homemade chocolates which we did not get!
Funny part of the night — the cooks chiming in at midnight with pots and pans
Highlight of the night: the wines, a tour of Italy 1999
