Bonjour Friends! Did you miss me? I sure missed all of you! I was so used to writing for Bistro Chic, first daily, then weekly. So, when this pattern is abruptly changed – by choice of course – it’s such a weird feeling.
Regarding my hiatus, I would love to say that I was jet-setting all around Europe chatting with the locals, but in reality, I was working my rear-end off for my real job, including an 8-day stint in San Diego. Could be worse I guess, right? Who wouldn’t love to leave cold Chicago in exchange for sunny and warm California?
While in San Diego, I enjoyed mucho blanco vino (all free, ooh la la!) but also had some AWESOME red wine sangria at the very chic Indigo Grill…
The restaurant was a cool mix of Western North American, sporting flavors from Mexico, all the way up the coast to Alaska. Very woodsy!
I’m not quite sure how Spanish sangria showed up on the menu but I wasn’t complaining if you know what I mean! Not only was the sangria amazing – I had three glasses so you know it was gooood! – but the food was outstanding…
I had the wild mushroom fettucini topped with deep fried leeks. As you can see, the presentation was super classy and chic!
Can I just say Oh My Gosh! The portion sizes were HUGE – nothing like what they serve in Europe – but of course I was in San Diego. I only ate about 1/4 the dish – know when to say when – and enjoyed every bite.
So now that you are filled in on my hiatus escapades, stay tuned for more Bistro Chic articles related to European styles, culture, products, holidays and more!
