Happy New Year, fellow foodies! Hope everyone made it through Blizzageddon '10/'11 all right. I got stuck in Vegas for a few extra days, but was otherwise unscathed. Now it's time to think about January eats, yeah? Some egregious holiday spending has curtailed my budget for eating out, so I haven't been sampling our local cuisine nearly as much as would be expected. I did get over to 67 Burger the other night, but other than that? Nada.
As we head into the new year, I realize there are a variety of places I have yet to try, both old and new. The new coffee place on Willoughby, WTF, for instance. The Local wrote about it recently, and a reader even e-mailed asking if I'd been there. Well, aside from walking past it a few times, I haven't. Yet.
The Emerson (which isn't on Emerson), is another. Looks like an interesting new bar, and it's right around the corner from me. Have I been there? No. Will I? Sure.
How about restaurants that have been around forever that I've yet to try? Luz, for one. Black Iris, for another. What else am I missing? The new place that replaced Thomas Beisl? Dino?
Help me out here, folks.
