Forty Acres is described as serving authentically American southern comfort food with a modern twist. Located on Wealthy Street, I’ve only dined here once for dinner.

Marcona on Lyon

Marcona on Lyon Street has only been open for a couple weeks now. After I looked at their menu online, I was eager to try it out. Featuring modern Mediterranean cuisine, that means that their influences are from the countries that touch that particular sea. Italy, Greece, Spain, and North Africa. They don’t photograph particularly […]

It was our first time at Vintage Prime Seafood, which is located inside Cork Wine & Grille, which is located inside a golf course club in Cascade. Um, whatever this was, […]

Nu Thai Bistro

I’ve been on a mission to find a favorite Thai spot in town. It’s not that there’s a lack of options in GR; it’s the fact that so many don’t use fish sauce. WHY??? Fish sauce is a staple of Thai cuisine! It makes food delicious! Use it! Another reason I’ve been on the hunt […]

La Lotería

La Lotería has been around for a year now, but I only discovered it recently. A Mexican ice cream and snack shop, it is located on 28th Street in Wyoming. While the La Fresa Michoacana was really good, I actually preferred this one more. The sorbet was really good and the whole thing was more […]
