The Grill Room at Windsor Court

So I made it to The Grill Room at Windsor Court in New Orleans.

I don’t normally rate a restaurant but I would certainly give this place a 5/5 stars for excellence!  Not only was the food ahhmazing but also the staff was full of southern hospitality!  I was beyond impressed.

Sydney and I took full advantage of the Lunch Plate.  Monday through Saturday you can get a meat and three gourmet plate lunch for just $19.84.   The $19.84 price tag is a nod to the hotel’s opening.  The restaurant also offers $2 martinis made with Tito’s Vodka or Plymouth Gin.  Could it get any sweeter?

The Grill Room is one of New Orleans’ only four-star/four-diamond restaurant  The ingredients are locally sourced and the chef cooks up an amazing cuisine that only can be found in the South.

The Grill Room at Windsor Court is a must for anyone traveling to New Orleans.  Just tell them FourOneOh! sent you!

And please make sure to try the Perfect Pear Martini!  It’s heaven.  Trust me.

Ida B's Table in Baltimore

Had such a great time having lunch at Ida B’s Table in Baltimore!   The staff, the atmosphere and the food all added to our very cool and quaint experience.  We enjoyed some great vegan dishes offered by the restaurant that even a meat lover would enjoy.  The Eggplant Burger was hands down my favorite dish!  Ida B’s Table is a modern soul food restaurant with a bar, parlor, drawing room, and main dining room.  The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, small plates during happy hour, and dinner.

From the website:

Ida B’s Table is named in honor of Ida B. Wells, the pioneering journalist and anti-lynching activist. Ida Bell Wells-Barnett (1862 – 1931) was a contemporary of W.E.B Dubois and Susan B. Anthony, writing and campaigning for justice around the world. She was one of the founders of the NAACP in 1909, and in 1990 the USPS issued a 25-cent postage stamp of her likeness.

Here are the details on what Dayna and I enjoyed for lunch:

Dinner at Magdalena Baltimore in the Ivy Hotel

So let’s talk about this amazing dinner I had at the restaurant Magdalena inside of Baltimore’s super chic “The Ivy Hotel.”  The  Magdalena boasts itself as a fine-dining bistro and a culinary jewel of Baltimore.  I COULDN’T AGREE MORE!

The menu is built upon the finest local ingredients, and changes with the seasons and the inspiration of the chef.  The chef, Mark Levy, is doing a little more than cooking in that kitchen, he is putting love and skill in these dishes.

My guest and I were amazed at how beautifully plated each dish was as well as the combination of flavors.

Favorite Appetizer: Raw & Shellfish Platter & Salad of Belgian Endive & Braeburn Apple

Favorite Entree: Roasted Magret Duck Breast, Corn Blinis, Grilled Peach, Chanterelles & Duck Sausage Gravy

Favorite Desert:  Meyer Lemon & Huckleberry Sundae, Olive Oil Cake & Coconut Cream
