Over the Christmas holiday we found ourselves in Morrisville, NC, visiting family. One of our forays out for food brought us to Saffron, in a strip mall near a Harris Teeter supermarket. The setting screamed strip mall food, and the inside really didn’t scream anything differently, but the proof is what’s on the plate. The

On our trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL a few months ago we were excited to have reservations at the new Morimoto Asia restaurant. Having watched Morimoto over the years on Iron Chef, we expected great things. There were six of us, all of whom love Asian food. We arrived in Orlando late

After a brief internet search it appeared that Chardonnay’s would be a good choice, at least based on the online reviews we read. The menu looked pretty amazing, and the wine list was also impressive. They have

We were looking for something to do that was 1: new for us, 2: lots of fun and 3: relaxing at the same time. That’s not a very easy list of things to satisfy at the same time. It would also help if it was not too far from home and didn’t cost an arm

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

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
