Eat Up Downtown: Indochine

Eat Up Downtown’s purpose is clear — draw Jacksonville’s citizenry away from their favorite outlying restaurants and into downtown.  Some of the most highly regarded establishments in the city trot out their three course prix fixe menus once a year for the low, low price of $25.

Nutrition Information: Coming to a Table Near YOU.

It’s no secret that eating at restaurants can be shockingly high in calories. Anyone who has seen “Eat This Not That” segments on morning shows knows that the whole wheat grilled chicken hold-the-mayo sandwich is sometimes more of a calorie bomb than a cheeseburger.

Is this good or bad? (more…)

Slow Foodies At Play

As they say, they want to support the good, the clean and the fair. Slow Food First Coast has been busy doing just that this spring.

Media Event: Meet the Farmers at The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island

It’s been said by many a Muppet – it’s not easy being green. These days it’s getting a lot easier if you’re in North Florida. Restaurants, hotels and a host of other purveyors of goods and services are making an effort to be more environmentally aware. The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island showed off their efforts at a “Meet the Farmers” dinner on April 8th. Can luxury be green? I put on my Ritzy shoes to find out. (more…)

Review: Hunt Club Subs ‘n Grill

As a girl most comfortable in corsets and velvet, Hunt Club Subs ‘n Grill should be the polar opposite of a place I’d love. As they say, don’t judge a book by its cover.
