So I have been traveling non-stop for the past week and I have been to some pretty neat cities and been fortunate to have some pretty great food. If you are out and about during the holidays and in any of these cities...Chicago, Vegas or are some places to check out.

Topolobampo - by Rick Bayless
We had the tasting was a little eclectic but still pretty tasty. If you want to splurge then add the wine pairing with it as well.
A sample of the tasting menu...yes the green stuff was
described as Mexican Air...swear even though I think he was
joking with us!

Hash Hash a Go Go - Plaza Hotel Old Vegas Area
Great breakfast joint, they actually use the tag line "Twisted Farm Food" which I wouldn't disagree with. First of all the menu was giant and it is great for a hungry Vegas morning . Their bloody Mary's were also amazing they were supposed to come with jalapeno stuffed green olives, but since I'm not big on the jalapenos and he isn't big on olives we didn't try that part. But they did have pickled green beans in them that were tasty! I would say you should ask not to sit by the door. And if you are looking for a good casual sushi restaurant try Aloha Sushi which is just next door in the same hotel. We found the recommendation on Yelp.

Hash served in a cast iron skillet.

Yes that is mashed potatoes with breakfast. And a giant tree of rosemary
in the biscuit.

Big Bloody Mary, served with a big straw!

Old Ebbitt Grill
To round out my week long journey I was in DC and was recommended to eat at Old Ebbitt Grill by multiple people. It was a very cool DC establishment with some of the very best oysters I have ever eaten in my life. Eat here, get the oysters and order double what you think you will eat.

AND they have nutcrackers on the outside!!!

AND a wooden dog in the window where our booth was!
