Over the last couple of weeks I stopped there for a lunch a couple of more times.I am happy to report that the Chicken Fingers are as good as I remember them. I’m also happy to…Continue readingChicken Fingers Still Star – Mitzi’s

The first of these visits I made during Le Burger Week Last year, and then I went again a few weeks ago.The first thing you notice when you walk into ERA Bistro is how wide-open and airy it feels. It contains an interesting mix of tables for small groups along with a…Continue readingERA Bistro – Human Rights Museum
