2010 has been such a great year for me and my little blog! It’s hard to believe that I started this baby only 10 months ago! I’ve had so much fun writing, taking pictures of, and eating delicious food! With so many amazing restaurants, it’s hard to pick just 5 favorites. But I’m going to try! Without further ado, here are my top 5 restaurants of 2010 (in no particular order):
Andy took me here for our 3 year anniversary in October. That was just a couple months ago, and I’m still dreaming about those scallops. They were like buttah, yall!
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve visited the Creperie this year. It’s probably one of my favorite breakfast/brunch places of all time. Their crepes never disappoint!
Sweet Art is hands down my favorite bakery in St. Louis. Aside from their delicious cupcakes (and vegan brownies!), they also make delicious vegetarian and vegan fare. You might remember my post where I waxed poetic about the joys of Sweet Art. Why haven’t they hired me as their social media representative? I’d do a great job, I bet! *hint hint*!
Tam Tam was my first foray into West African cuisine, and I guarantee it won’t be my last. Their ginger juice was so deliciously potent! Wowza! Such a friendly, down home atmosphere, too.
Milagro Modern Mexican opened this year in Webster Groves, and I’ve been a fan from day one. Expertly prepared Mexican food with an upscale flair. And with their newly expanded menu, there’s enough to keep me coming back again and again. Oh, and a little birdie told me that their horchata martini is to die for! I guess I better go back and find out for myself.
And now for the bonus selection: Jeff Ruby’s! It’s too bad that Jeff Ruby’s is no longer here in St. Louis. Who could forget that gluttonous adventure my mom treated me and my sister to? Oh, it was grand. Rest in peace, Jeff Ruby’s (and if I ever visit Cincinnati, Louisville, or Belterra, I know where I’ll be headed!)
So there you have it. My top 5 (plus 1!) favorite restaurants I’ve dined at this year. What are your favorites? Have a safe and happy New Year! See you in 2011!
P.S. I’m sorry it took me so long to pick a winner for the Wendy’s contest! I picked one earlier this week, I just didn’t get a post up. Anyway, the winner is…*drumroll*
