When I travel, it takes a lot to persuade me to return to the same city, let alone the same hotel. There is so much to see and experience I prefer to leave monotony and routine at home. A recent weekend trip to Boston changed my mind, redefining my standard of travel and making me […]
You know those foods you just can’t forget? Like a dessert that was so delicious, you scraped the plate with your finger just to get the last chocolate remnants? Or the perfectly chewy, salty, cheesy slice of pizza that comes back to you in frequent daydreams? That’s how I feel about the cod at Brasserie […]

Since I started this blog, a question that I often get is: “If you love food so much, why not cook more?” My answer has always been, A) I work about 70 hours a week in my day job – so the last thing I want to do is come home and make a mess/clean […]

Well summer has officially arrived in Boston – the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the weather has warmed. As I congratulated myself for surviving another frostbite-inducing New England winter, I started to brainstorm possible warm weather vacation destinations for my annual summer vacation (a reward for not freezing to death).
Last week, a bunch of media folk gathered at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar to taste the newly created entrees that were introduced on its menu this April.

After spending an exciting but exhausting weekend in New York for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week – man, am I glad to be back in Boston!
