Plenty of new restaurants, and these should make your list

Esquire's Best New Restaurants in America, 2018

Esquire    11/28/2018

Caviar on a bone-marrow custard. Carnitas on a deftly textured tortilla. A Balinese chicken thigh with a crackly roof of skin. We loved them all this year—we crushed hard on fancy tasting menus and Filipino rice bowls, swooned over ceviches and tlacoyos. Where should you eat? We’re sending you here, to the Best New Restaurants in America. You’ll probably see us at the next table, because we can’t stop going back.

Restaurant review: Vegan spot Seed sprouts to St. Claude Avenue

The Advocate    12/10/2018

New Orleanians have a lot of opinions about gumbo, and to be fair, they’ve got plenty of reason to be skeptical of tinkering. The internet is awash with recipes from across the country offering spins on the dish with ingredients such as potatoes, chickpeas and yes, even kale. The phrase “healthy...

Ghin Khao Eat Rice seems less a full-fledged restaurant than a brick-and-mortar food truck. The menu, as slim as a flier, focuses on the few Thai plate lunches and shareable snacks the shoebox kitchen can muster. The dining room, small and windowless, has been decked out with a...

We Dare You to Visit These Hauntingly Beautiful Montana Ghost Towns

Budget Travel    10/4/2018

Sure, you know Montana as the home of two of America's most famous national parks. But there's another side to Big Sky Country that's decidedly, well, haunting. Montana's history is largely based on the gold and silver deposits that lured miners here in the 1860s, hoping to strike it rich. Boomtowns sprang up providing the services they needed--lodging, saloons, schools, general stores, livery...

5 San Diego places to try Argentine empanadas, the perfect pastry pocket

San Diego Union-Tribune    12/6/2017

Empanadas just might be the perfect food. Depending on the filling, the little hand pies can be breakfast, lunch or dinner, a snack, a party food or dessert; eaten as part of a meal or on the run as a quick pick-me-up. My favorite way was how I ate them in Argentina — daily at 4:30 p.m., with a glass of malbec, to tide me over until dinner at 10 p.m. San Diego seems to have caught on to the...

CNN    11/11/2018

Military museums across the United States and around the world often offer visitors glimpses of world wars, commemorating the men and women who sacrificed their lives for their country. The National Veterans Memorial and Museum has a broader goal: to represent veterans -- not just war. War stories are present, of course, but they aren't primary. Instead, there's attention given to the decision to...

Now over a century later, a modern breed of oystermen are setting up shop in the same (albeit very different) place. Cousins Travis and Ryan...

Its Bourbon Street façade, meatloaf, and Sunday bluegrass brunch have been staples of North Park culture. However, a dozen years later, a flood of craft beer,...
