Twenty Five Lusk

Friday night, we stumbled upon this restaurant while bar hopping and waiting for our friend, Matt. After a few drinks, we decided to grab a light dinner. Someone from Jax recommended that we check out Twenty Five Lusk. The location of the restaurant was a bit hidden on Townsend st in SoMa. When we arrived, […]

Mom and Dad are in town

This weekend, my parents came to visit us from Massachusetts. Ky and I have been trying to get my dad to try new things. My mom is a lot easier to please, she loves mostly everything but my dad is a super picky eater. He’s also lactose intolerant so it makes things that much more […]

Paris, vous êtes parfait.

For the final part of our trip, we stayed in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris for a week. I’ll never get tired of Paris. From the glamorous shopping areas to the dusty streets, I love everything this city has to offer. Parisians are often misunderstood when Americans refer to them as “rude”. In fact, most […]

Go Paris SG!!!

Being a huge soccer fan, Ky got us tickets to the Paris Saint Germaine game while we were in Paris. It was soooooo awesome!!! PSG played again Saint-Etienne and kicked their butts 5-0!!! It was pretty amazing that we got to see Ibrahimovic in action. He was on fire! We had such a great time […]

Champagne Tasting @ Mumm

Our first champagne tour was at the Mumm winery. Being members of the Mumm club in Napa, we wanted to compare the bubbles from the two locations. Although the champagne was great, the experience of the tour was overall okay. Our guide could be a little more enthusiastic.

Jardin Botanique De Lyon

Jardin botanique du Parc de la Tête d’Or is a government funded public park in Lyon. Not only does it contain the largest botanical garden in France, it also has a zoo! We saw hundreds of varieties of plants and flowers. My favorites were the rose garden and the endless patches of scrubs. Surprisingly, my […]

Au 14 Fevrrier

Like I said, we were in Lyon to taste the stars and Au 14 Fevrrier was the second Michelin stared restaurant we booked. Only servicing 14 people a night, they kept the place spacious and quiet with exceptional customer service. Au 14 Fevrrier means “the 14th of February” in French. Naturally, everything in the restaurant […]

Tetedoie – Restaurant Gastronomique

Tetedoie of Lyon was our first Michelin stared restaurant in France. Located on a hill that overlooked the entire city, the view was amazing especially at night. The restaurant was decorated with whimsical and colorful artwork. We were a bit early when we arrived but the hostess had no issue seating us. There was already […]
