tom yum soup

Thai food has this amazing balance between salty, sweet, sour, and spicy! Most dishes need to tick each box to accomplish a rounded execution. To us, this umami quartet dances in our mouths and sings in our bellies. That intense, craveable spice; the funkiness from the fish sauce; and all the beautiful aromatics from the…

filet mignon

Whenever we get a hankering for a steakhouse dinner, we immediately imagine that quintessential, buttery filet mignon. There’s something so elegant about that lean, tender piece of meat; that irony, distinct flavor; and always accompanied with some sort of indulgent side that forces you to unbutton your pants at the dinner table. For us, there…

caesar dressing

roasted tomato soup & grilled cheese

In that way, the pair is quite sophisticated, yet after one dunk, you find yourself consumed and comforted in memories of childhood. Something so simple…

chicken milanese

On our second night in Torino, a wonderfully underrated city in northern Italy, we spotted a piazza as if it were out of a movie. There were groups of Italians chatting loudly, apéritivi in hands, the sound of water flowing from the fountain in the center of the square…both of us found ourselves so entranced…

whiskey sour

This was the first cocktail that Bartender Bradley (aka Mr. Liquid) truly perfected. It’s so stinkin’ tasty that you’ll find yourself downing 3 oz of liquor like it’s nobody’s business. This frothy drink is super simple to make, but impresses all! Keep the ingredients ready in your fridge, and you can whip these puppies up…
