Starting off with my personal favorite meal of December… and maybe ever. The Grilled Prime Ribeye is served with brussels sprouts, mac and cheese and gorgonzola butter. If I’m treating myself to a nice meal in The Magic City, Gianmarco’s is where I’m headed and this is what I’m ordering. Look at that butter!

2. Honey latte from Trvl Love

“The Ono Poké is always my go-to spot for lunch. I love all the fresh ingredients and delicious sauces. My favorite topping has to be pineapple—the sweetness matches perfectly with the saltiness of the tuna.”

Me again! Another one of favorite meals is a classic breakfast plate. The farm breakfast at Frothy Monkey is my go-to and the Broadbent bacon puts it over the top.
