Chez Sophie Anniversary Dinner

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007 · 32 Comments

The night of our 4th anniversary (2 months ago today!), Jen and I celebrated by treating ourselves to dinner at the highly overrated French restaurant, Chez Sophie, inside The Saratoga hotel. We’d heard nothing but good things about Chez Sophie, so our expectations were high — as they should be when you’re paying upwards of […]

Pizza-ettes & Power Outage Fun

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Inspired last night by Alex & Cati’s infamous pizza-ettes (see here and here), Jen and I decided to take a stab at making them ourselves (OK, well mostly Jen, but I did more than my fair share in eating them!). We made 4 of the wheat pita-based wonders — 2 with feta and artichoke hearts […]

Saratoga Restaurant Week

Monday, January 15th, 2007 · No Comments

OK, so I’m only a bit over a month behind in blogging now, but it’s a holiday and it’s an ice storm outside, so what better way to spend the day than getting caught up on my two blog backlog lists (and doing some work, which I can’t resist). Saratoga Springs officially became a town […]

Beekman Street Bistro

Thursday, July 27th, 2006 · 1 Comment

A little more than a year ago, Jen, Justin, and I were enjoying drinks one evening at 9 Maple, our favorite (and the best) local martini bar here in Saratoga Springs. We struck up a conversation with a cool guy who had just come to town from Portland, Oregon to open a new restaurant that […]

Tastes Like Chicken

Tuesday, March 14th, 2006 · 12 Comments

There are a lot of reasons people don’t eat meat and each of us has his own: Maybe you don’t like the way animals are treated, perhaps you’re sketched out by the hormones with which animals are injected, maybe you’ve read Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation, or it could be that you simply don’t enjoy […]

Saratoga Dine

Wednesday, February 15th, 2006 · 1 Comment

To celebrate Valentine’s Day last night — something we haven’t always done — Jen and I hit Dine, one of the nicest restaurants in Saratoga Springs. Our first time there was last June and we were really blown away. The service was impeccable, the food out of this world; it was a rare and welcome […]

Frozen Indian Dinner

Friday, January 20th, 2006 · 1 Comment

Most of you who know me know that I love Indian food. In San Francisco, Jen and I were fortunate enough to live a block from the most excellent Naan ‘n Curry (Inner Sunset edition) — damn good and damn cheap. The two of us could go there for dinner, bring our own beer, and […]
