We love to travel! On this page, we’ll post our most recent adventures, focusing on the culinary side of the trip.
One Year Anniversary Trip to Chicago
We love Chicago! Celebrating our one year anniversary, we roadtripped to the windy city and spent a week in the museums, shops, and of course, restaurants. Here are some of the places we ate:
Nutella Crepes from Yolk. Whitney was in heaven.
Beer from The Publican, a spot recommended by Chef Michael Symon.
Chicago-style pizza from Giordano’s.
Whitney devouring a Chicago Dog from Portillo’s
Anniversary night, we ate dinner at The Signature Room at the 95th, which is the restaurant at the top of the John Hancock Building. The views were breathtaking, and the food was excellent!
For dessert, they served Godiva bread pudding, and look- they even wished us a happy anniversary with chocolate!
We also really enjoyed this Italian restaurant, Quartino. Their wine, antipasto, cheese plates, and overall atmosphere made us feel like we were in Italy, not Chicago!
Honeymoon in Seaside Florida
In August 2009, we traveled to Seaside, Florida. Seaside is a quaint beach town in the pan handle of Florida. The cottages are gorgeous, the sand is white, the people are friendly, and the food is unbeatable. Here are some pictures from the trip:
We ate oysters all ways!
Raw, baked, and fried. With a little hot sauce, a cracker, and some lemon, these fresh treats were addicting.
This restaurant, appropriately named “The Shrimp Shack,” served us a pound of peel and eat shrimp that were freshly caught that day.
One of our favorite meals came from the restaurant, “Fish Outta Water.” They were tipped that it was our honeymoon, and served us this souffle with salted caramel for dessert.
Soft shell crab po’boy! Perfect.
Our final night in Seaside, we grilled lobster tails, corn on the cob, and sweet potato.
On the way back, we stopped in Memphis at Neely’s (of Food Network fame) BBQ. From the brisket to the corn to the biscuits, oh man, amazing food.
A perfect way to conclude our travels.
