friday five | food diary.

J:

Mercy mercy mercy. Friday is finally HERE.

I’ve been sifting through recent iPhone photos and realized I’ve been hoarding #foodpics and resto recommendations. For shame. Let’s catch up, shall we?

The Silver Moon | Lake Oconee: L and I had a girls getaway at Lake Oconee a few weeks ago and shared the most delicious fresh shrimp. It was photo-worthy obviously.

*Note: You may have trouble finding this gem of a restaurant because their sign simply says “Bar and Grill” so keep an eye out.

JCT Kitchen & Bar | Atlanta: You probably saw this gorgeous sight on our instagram page, but I had to give more info because it was THAT good. Steak tartare with a side of fried corn on the cobb. {not pictured MOMO sauvignon blanc}

Joey D’s Oak Room | Atlanta: Keeping with the steak theme… Sometimes a great steak is exactly what you’re looking for. Look no further than Joey D’s Oak Room! Conveniently located across from Perimeter Mall with a bar you MUST see to believe.

Gino’s East Pizzeria | Chicago: After dining here on my last two trips to Chicago, I definitely need to share the best deep dish in town. Gino’s East is exactly what they say it is… legendary. Can’t make it to Chicago? Gino’s will ship a pie directly to your door. #dangerous

Smith & Wollensky | Chicago: Exactly what a crab cake should be… crab. To die for. And highly recommend dining al fresco.

friday five | the windy city.

J: You guys. Tomorrow is my friend Mary’s 30th birthday! YAY! Here we are the night Jay and I got engaged. I hope she has that same smile on her face all weekend long in CHICAGO.

HBD, MARES <3

We’re skipping town to meet up with our girls, Anny and Shaili, in The Windy City. I can hardly contain my excitement.

With that, here are 5 things that are on our agenda this weekend. As you will see, we’re eating our way through the city. Reviews to follow after we’re back and recovered.

1. Gino’s East: Mary’s first birthday request… to eat pizza at Gino’s East. She says it’s the best. I’ll be the judge of that.

2. Tanta Chicago: We were lucky to land a reservation at this Peruvian hot spot. Let’s see what this cebiche is all about.

3. Chicago Q: Who doesn’t love a good BBQ joint? The bruleed macaroni and cheese is calling my name.

4. Bar Takito: Just the decor in this place looks so fun. Already dreaming of a cucumber margarita

5. Bottlefork: This will be me: “One bag of sour cream donut holes, please.”

I have my BFF and Chicagoan, Anny Kitchen, to thank for this amazing itinerary. Stay tuned for trip pics on our Instagram page!
