What a blast I had putting together lists of best restaurants, bars, and hotels for Condé Nast Traveler. I guess once a restaurant critic always a restaurant critic, because when an interesting new restaurant or bar opens, I try to get there within its first few weeks of opening, then return once or twice once things have settled some. I'm just completely fascinated by the restaurant world, and I'm always taking mental notes. So when the CNT team asked if I could come up with a list comprised of classics, new spots, and a few interesting outliers, I was ready to go. Check out the articles here! Oh and speaking of reviews, I neglected to post the guest review I did for Seattle Met last fall. This is one of my favorite-ever projects, so I hope you'll give it a read too.
