Happy New Year!

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend celebrating!  Mr. T and I went out to Long Island Saturday and spent the night with friends drinking beer and eating St. Louis inspired dishes like toasted ravioli's and Imo's pizza topped with Provel cheese.  It was another fantastic night and wonderful holiday week that reminded me how lucky I am to have such a great group of family and friends.

I only made it to six of the thirteen restaurants on my 2016 wish list last year.  Not great at all but in my defense one of the restaurants never even opened (I'm looking at you Joel Robuchon).  Here's to hoping I make it to a few more this year.  Maybe even all of them which would be a first!

Restaurant Wish List for 2017

Le Bernardin
Pasquale Jones
Gabriel Kreuther
Hail Mary
Circus Bar (Paris)
Matarkjallarinn (Iceland)
El Quinto Pino
Bamboo Garden

El quinto pino has been one of my favorite spots for years! Dont miss the crispy garbanzos, if the chickpea and spinach stew is on the menu get that, a great version of patatas bravas. The croquetas are sometimes great and sometimes not.

Thanks for the recs Trockwood! The crispy garbanzos sound amazing. I can't believe I've never been- it's one of those spots I just completely forgot about it for some reason. But now that I'm really getting back into Spanish wines it seems kind of perfect :) Happy New Year!
