    What a great photo review of RICHARD BLAIS’ JUNIPER & IVY! I love that the chef took time for you, what a cool experience!

  • Laura - June 9, 2015 - 2:30 AM

    Richard Blais’ Juniper & Ivy looks like a restaurant I want to try out. Great review and beautiful images.

  • Cindy Palmer - June 9, 2015 - 5:26 AM

    All of these photographs are amazing! So many different things that I want to try just based on your food photography alone!
    This will definitely be one of the restaurants I will have to check out before I leave San Diego!

    I love watching shows especially with Gordon Ramsay. I should watch this one. So awesome you had a great experience in visiting this place. Food looks really good there.

  • Carly Fuller - June 9, 2015 - 10:14 PM

    What a great idea! I love reviewing local restaurants I go to. The devil’s cake looks too good for words!!!

  • Saskia - June 13, 2015 - 4:59 PM

    I loved to read your review of Richard Blais’ restaurant Juniper Ivy.
    My favorites were the ahi tuna tartare. I love ahi tuna tartare and this dish looks delicious.
    Second was the Almond wood grilled carrots. Those look very interesting.
    Since I am a dessert lover!!!, I can’t decide if I would go for the Yodel or the Pretzel. Both look yummy.

    Great review. Great images.

    Holy smoke…now I’m hungry and go for some wine 😉 Richard Blais’ Juniper & Ivy looks like an awesome restaurant! Loved this review and the images are perfect!

Hello friends!  Thought I’d mix things up and share with you my review of the very delicious Cork & Craft Restaurant. I discovered this place a few months ago when having lunch with a fellow vendor and fell in love with the place I’ve probably been back every week since.  Part restaurant, part brewery, part […]

    Oh, Man! It is not even lunch time, but looking at these images, this delicious food made me hungry again =)

  • Rachel - June 1, 2015 - 5:05 AM

    Wow, I am left feeling very hungry after looking at all your images and reading about the flavors and ingredients. I can’t help but wonder, did you eat all that food yourself? If so, that’s rad! I’m jealous.

Hello friends!  If you’re in the UTC area and are a lover of food & beer I have a great new place for you to try called Draft Republic. I am absolutely in love with this place and am planning on this being my new hangout.  This Gastropub is crazy fun with free pool, ping […]
