    Epicure Events Aplenty at Bijou French Bistro La Jolla

    Courtesy Bijou French Bistro “Bijou” is French for “jewel,” which is a fitting moniker for this enchanting eatery nestled in the heart of La Jolla, boasting a plum position on Prospect Street. While Bijou French Bistro is relatively new on the scene, celebrating its first anniversary in June 2015, Bijou’s roots extend much deeper into San Diego’s renowned culinary culture.

    Del Frisco Grille NYC Tenders Twists on Comfort Food Classics

    Courtesy Del Frisco’s Grille.jpg When I travel to New York City, I seek out those venues where I can be “one with the natives” and immerse myself in the local culture to get a true sense of an area. More often than not I find these opportunities off the beaten path, in mom and pop eateries or neighborhood watering holes where authentic atmosphere and provincial fare reigns supreme but nary a tourist can be found. However, sometimes such gastronomic gems are hiding in plain sight, as is the case with Del Frisco Grille New York. With an enviable location at the very heart of Rockefeller Center just blocks away from Times Square and Radio City Music Hall, this restaurant emanates the energy, dynamism and culinary creativity that makes NYC such a draw for locals and visitors, alike.
