In-N-Out Burger Hollywood

Through my eyes: Hollywood couldn’t not cover a review of the famous In-N-Out Burger, which is very close to the Hollywood Blvd. Walk of Fame. For a while I’ve heard about stories of friends and people much more well-traveled than myself telling me about their love for In-N-Out Burger. In-N-Out Burger needs no introduction. It’s a…

Ladurée, as the name can tell, is a French luxury bakery and sweets maker house which first opened in Paris near the Place de la Concorde in 1862. It is…

Urth Caffè Santa Monica

Urth Caffè is the America’s first only organic coffee company with six different locations in Southern California each with their own ambiance and architecture. The peculiar name of the cafe comes from two words: Urth is an old Welsh root spelling of Earth and Caffè is Italian for coffee. So with combination they want a…

Through my eyes: Santa Monica

In my point of view Santa Monica can be described in three words: the beach, the pier and the stores, they really are Santa Monica’s three main attractions. Santa Monica is everything Los Angeles isn’t: relaxed and refreshed, and full of boutique restaurants and hidden gems that offer a certain shelter from the chaos of…

First Watch

When I’m in Italy, I never get to go to brunch especially as much as I’d like to, so when the opportunity to enjoy a leisurely brunch with my friends @adrianmcarroll @cbconnell and my girlfriend @ninamclernon presented itself, I was excited to try a great spot. First Watch is a restaurant chain based in Bradenton,…

P.F. Chang’s China Bistro

Walking around in Kansas City in my favourite spot, The Country Club Plaza, my friends and I had a quick lunch stop at P.F. Chang’s China Bistro. I had never been to P.F. Chang’s before. I know, I know this popular Chinese chain restaurant has dozens of locations around the world, but I just hadn’t…

One of my stops at Kansas City restaurants during my weekend there was Seasons 52.  Located in the Country Club Plaza – Brookside neighborhood, it’s an upscale fresh grill and wine bar with a rotating menu of seasonally inspired American dishes alongside international wines.
