Restaurant Review: Chopt Creative Salad

Today was a super productive day for me – which is why I’m not writing this blog post till so late at night! But I wanted to take the opportunity to talk a little bit more about my latest obsession: chopped salads. Up until this year, I had never had a chopped salad before. The classic “chopped salad” is what a lot of steakhouses serve: iceberg lettuce, artichoke hearts, hearts of palm, avocado, blue cheese, bacon, tomato, onion, and an egg. Not so healthy, as far as salads go! However, while on the quest for a healthy meal at my …

Copenhagen Restaurant Review: Relae

After resting all afternoon, I was ready and eager to get going on Saturday night! A few weeks ago, when I first booked my trip to Copenhagen, I started pulling out all the stops to try to eat at Noma, recently taking the title from El Bulli as the best restaurant in the world. However, reservations there are taken 6 months in advance, and it’s next to impossible to get one inside that window. On the bike tour, we rode by and stopped to look at the harbor from right in front of it, and I couldn’t resist going in …

Top Chef Restaurant Review: Social Eatz, by Angelo Sosa

My goodness, what a weekend! On Thursday, I had a work social event that ended up being pretty fruitful for me. I spoke with our CEO for about 20 minutes and the head of financial services for about 30, all about my thoughts on our integration (we were acquired a few months ago) and what cultural changes were still necessary to make it successful at the junior staff levels. On Friday, in the all day meetings we had, the CEO even called me out by name mid-meeting – hope that means I made a good impression! Since I hadn’t gotten …

Breakfast at Starbucks

Boyfriend is going to be crazy busy at work this week with a major deck due, so we decided that instead of staying together as usual, we’d take most nights “off” and instead meet up at Starbucks for a quick coffee in the mornings on our way to work. I’m not sure if you any of you are familiar with Lisa from Hungry Girl, but she puts out a daily newsletter full of diet tips that I really like. Most of her tricks are based on cooking at home and making healthy ingredient swaps, a philosophy that I totally agree …

A dieting triumph!

Tonight I finally hit on a restaurant that can make what I want. Turner Fisheries is right in the hotel (well, not really in the hotel… but the hotel connects to a large plaza and it’s right in that) where I stay, and for dinner I was able to order 6 oz swordfish grilled dry, with a seafood stock “sauce” (no butter!), some roasted fingerling potatoes that just have a bit of olive oil on them, and two pieces of delicious warm French bread. Would have been nice if it were some kind of nutritious veggie instead of a starchy …
