Poke O

Hawaii’s famous raw fish dish is taking Dallas by storm with poke places popping up all over the city. If you haven’t heard of poke (which rhymes with okay) before, it’s super fresh raw fish tossed with veggies and typically served over rice. If you like sushi, you’ll like poke. A huge poke fan myself,…

Ziziki’s at The Star

Last week I had the pleasure of checking out Ziziki’s at The Star (6765 Winning Drive, Suite 800, Frisco, Texas 75034) with my friend Wendy Darling. My regular readers know how much I adore Greek food. In fact, it’s my favorite cuisine! I was excited to see what the fairly new Frisco restaurant had to offer….

Dining Review: The Terrace and The Lounge at The Buccaneer

Christiansted is alive with sparkling lights in the distance. The sun sets dramatically over Saint Croix. The Caribbean breeze gently blows your hair as live music serenades you.

St. Croix Dining: Café Christine

Dining Review: Kitchen 218 at Beach House Turks and Caicos

If Kitchen 218 was in Dallas, it would be the perfect place to take a date you want to impress. Located poolside at Beach House Turks and Caicos on Providenciales in the Caribbean,  Kitchen 218 feels like a swanky friend’s envious backyard. The boutique hotel is a short ride away from both Alexandra Resort on Grace Bay Beach and…

Dining Review: Salt Bar and Grill at Blue Haven Resort

The best cracked conch of the trip! A short walk on Blue Haven Resort‘s waterfront boardwalk, Salt is a causal sports bar with indoor and outdoor seating. Every course was fresh and flavorful and service was quick. You can even play billiards on the beach while you wait for your food! Since everything at Blue…

Dining Review: Fire and Ice at Blue Haven Resort

Fire and Ice is an enchanting waterfront restaurant at the picturesque Blue Haven Resort on Providenciales in Turks and Caicos. The gentle ocean breeze blows through the indoor-outdoor Mediterranean restaurant, causing the airy white curtains to flow back and forth ever so softly. I particularly appreciated that jazz is always playing. My regular readers know how…
