Treat to Try: Whisk

 Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Whisk

To be frank, cinnamon rolls have been kind of disappointing recently. Not enough filling, dry and flavorless, fatty, unsweet icing: the list of complaints can start right there. But still, the one spotted from Whisk looked delicious — and Hallelujah Glory Be, the little bakery delivered a cinnamon roll that is worth fighting random waves […]

Restaurant Review: Palle by Moretti

 Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Palle by Moretti

For all its orneriness, Palle by Moretti is prima facie innocence and cuteness. Its booths are upholstered in sunny yellow. Chairs are in rainbow hues, and sunny sunflowers accent the decor. You might not notice that the servers wear shirts with two meatballs neatly placed in the nipple position. Or that the ladies’ room is […]
