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

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:


How does Plated work?


How does Plated work?

New York transit is full of advertisements.  I often have one of the moments where I say to myself “OOOOhhh I want to try that”, however by the time you make it off the train and get distracted by everything else the city throws at you, my “oooohhh” moments just fall to the wayside.  A while back, I noticed an advertisement for “Plated” and had one of those moments.  And now I can share with you how one of those moments actually happened!

Here is how Plated works…

1.  Sign up for Plated

Let them know how often you’d like to cook and what you like to eat.

2.  Pick your recipes

Choose from 9 exciting new recipes each week—desserts optional.

3.  Get your weekly box

Receive everything you need in an insulated box packed with care.

4.  Cook amazing meals

Follow simple recipe steps to create impressive dinners worth sharing.

It really is that easy!  I had so much fun cooking this Asian Chickpea Bowl.  I will feature the other I made later this week.  Plated makes you feel like a chef.  I would have never cooked anything like this, EVER!  And after all of your handwork you get to eat it and it was super yummy.  Grocery shopping is so hard for me because of the waste.  I try to shop for two meals at a time to cut down on waste.  Plated is perfect because it is proportioned and I always have enough to take for lunch the next day!  I would recommend this to anyone, single or families.  The delivery is reliable and the meals are good!  Stay tuned for my next “Plated Dish.”
