As it turns out, it looks like I'll be travelling for 3 days a week for the next six weeks. In fact, I just hit San Francisco and soon I'm off to Austin, Boston, Memphis, Denver and Chicago with probable repeat visits to Chicago and Memphis. And, all on the company's dime...which mean's good meals in good eatin' towns. So, what's an itinerant blogger to do but blog about food.
Unfortunately, I just thought of it today, so we'll miss out mostly on San Francisco...excpet to say I had two lovely meals in Beldin Alley (down Nob Hill, near Chinatown). This is a wee alley that's crammed with 5 or 6 great cafes. First, we ate at Pleuth -- famous for its mussels -- and it did not disappoint. The next day, we ate (and mostly drank) after a long day of work at Cafe Tiramisu. We had amazing ravioli dishes -- one with goat chese and mushrooms, which was absolutely sublime and another with lobster and crabmeat which was somewhat less so. But, then, the kicker was the dessert. You would think that a place called Cafe Tiramisu would make a good Tiramisu and in this case, you would be RIGHT. Stunning, light, little lady fingers from heaven. That's what they were.
Next up will be Austin, where we hope to have some good bbq and I hope to have pics and stronger details to follow.
