Well.....so much for my 10 To Try in '12! I know there are 7 weeks left in the year, so I may knock another one of the list, but let's face it, I've had 45 weeks to get to 10 places and I've made it just FOUR (well, technically 5 but it was for a party and only tasted a sample from Crop!)
I'm not confident I'll make it to one more on my list this year!
One I love, love, love. SOHO.
One I really, really, like. Deagan's.
One was good, but not my fave. L'Albartros.
And the other one, I'm just not feeling. There is much better Italian food in DTW at Fauncee's for a lot less money than at Pranzo.
I look at Spice every time we go to Happy Dog, but still have not made it.
I've had some of Fat Casual's meat on a steam bun from Noodlecat, does that count for anything?!
The other 3 I haven't even laid eyes on this year.
The problem is two-fold. One we don't get out enough. Two, we are creatures of habit.
Nolan could eat Ramen every.day.of.the.week from Noodlecat (and I'm not going to lie, I crave the chicken steam bun).
Reagan and Daddy are two peas in a beer pod, in that the love Ballantine and Fat Head's.
And me, well I'm on a Food Network show professing my love for Momocho's Machaca. (insert "that's what she said joke".)
(I'm in the first minute, again around 3 min, and again around 5min.)
So, I'm carrying over Spice Kitchen & Bar, Bac, and Crop to 2013 since they are in locations we tend to go to more often. I need 7 more. Tell me what I must try in this city and if I haven't tried it, I'll put it on the list.
