Dining Review -Emeril’s at Universal Orlando

emerils 7

Here is another restaurant review from our recent holiday trip to Orlando (read more about that here). We have considered going to Emeril’s for a long time, but somehow never seemed to quite get there. On this trip Cheri and I found ourselves alone for the first day and a half, so it seemed a

Tradition and Innovation from Mendoza – the Wines of Valentin Bianchi

It’s time we took a look toward South America on our wine investigations. Over the past twenty years the wines of Argentina and Chile have emerged on the world stage, earning a reputation for value along the way. In this article we’ll focus on the Mendoza province of Argentina, and specifically the wines of Valentin

Very Good Rioja for Under $20

IMG_1958

We are big fans of Rioja, loving the elegance and complexity that the traditional representations bring to the nose and palate. Old style Rioja generally means aromas of subdued red fruit, leather, tobacco and oak. American oak was always used, although recently there has been some movement toward French barrels. A good Rioja can age

Canvas and Vino Coming in February – At Mystic Aquarium!

We normally would not get too excited about a wine and painting event. Not that there’s anything wrong with them, it’s just that they have sprung up everywhere. We imagine it’s a good way to spend a few hours with friends. The wine, we assume, is not exactly great. The quality of the art is

A Sense of Place – The Wines of Galerie

IMG_1894

The more you talk with winemakers, the more you realize how broad the spectrum is of inspirations that drive them, and experiences which mold them. It could be a childhood spent around wine, a chance encounter later in life or an early recognition followed by a fanatical pursuit of a goal. It varies, just as

Dining Review – The Palm Restaurant Orlando

When we are staying at the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando one of the added benefits is having a Palm Restaurant right on site. This is one of those upscale chains that you can count on for a good meal, an excellent service experience and an excellent wine list. We always go when we have

Question: How do you know you did at least some things right when your children were growing up?

Answer: They still ask as adults to go to Disney World with you on vacation.

This is a very good thing, and to reinforce it we flew down to Orlando again this

Dining Review: Bravo Brasserie in Providence, RI

bravo 5

Bravo sees us come through their doors fairly regularly. A large part of that is due to the restaurant being directly across the street from the Trinity Repertory Company’s theater, where we are season subscribers. It’s sort of a tradition that we get to Providence a bit early and stop in at Bravo for a
