Le Chateaubriand, Paris

“Where shall we eat tonight?” we asked each other on a Saturday night in Paris, after spending most of the day walking (and shopping!) around town. “What about Le Chateaubriand, some people say it’s amazing!” Because who needs a booking for Saturday night at one of the best restaurants in Paris? Thanks to their system, they do two services a night […]

The Clove Club

Dining at The Clove Club, a restaurant/bar located in the Shoreditch Town Hall in London, has been on top of our todo list for quite a while.

Mole, Mezcal, and Mestizo

Let’s put it straight: the Día de los Muertos is officially the new halloween! The Día de los Muertos (or the Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday rooted in indigenous celebrations for the Aztec Queen of the underworld Mictecacihuatl (just try to repeat this 5 times as quickly as you can). With the […]

Osteria Francescana, Modena, Italy

Italy=Food (and much more of course, but the FOOD!!! Mamma mia!). We all know that and like anyone who’s ever been to Eataly, sorry I meant Italy, I’ve had memorable food there countless times. In consequence, our expectations for the Osteria Francescana – voted “the best restaurant in Italy” and 3rd best in world – […]
