Food:: Chicago: Bombobar

If you’re looking for a killer Instagram-worthy dessert venue, be sure to stop by Bombobar in the West Loop of Chicago. The menu even has a suggestion for the best Insta filter for their desserts – Juno. Lol. I’ll have to admit that I did feel a bit trite going there upon reading that bit but hey, 6 million Frenchmen can’t be wrong right? ūüėČ

Anyway, I’m glad I went. It’s a tiny dessert pick-up place¬†with a walk-up window, and you just order your decadent drink/gelato/Munchkin-like donut holes¬†and plop down on one of these cute chairs for a quick re-fuel, as well as nod to fellow photographers who are taking Insta/blog photos with their respective DSLRs and iPhones. I had a refreshing matcha cooler because it was unbearably¬†hot that day….and the donut hole was decadence squared.

WHAT: Bombobar

Food:: Chicago:: Atwood Restaurant

Another Chicago restaurant suggestion! It’s not a ‘review’ per se since my sister and I tried only 2 things on the menu but it’s worth a mention for its elegant d√©cor and delectable dishes. The Atwood Restaurant in Chicago, located in the Burnham Hotel,¬†is where you go when you are in the mood for a more sophisticated and contemporary dining experience.¬†It is so bright and airy in there with gorgeous white marble tables — blogger’s dream brunch spot! We had breakfast and it was delicious and presented impeccably. Servers were greeting the¬†diners¬†on a first-name basis, so you can deduce from that there are lots of repeat customers. Service was perfection, and it was just a pleasant experience overall. Would 10/10 recommend. Please read below for food details ;)))

Food:: Chicago:: Terzo Piano

I had¬†been dying to try out Terzo Piano, a contemporary restaurant on top of the Modern Wing at¬†the Art Institute. Last week, I finally had¬†a chance to try it out~ The interior d√©cor is simply breathtaking, with floor to ceiling window¬†views of Downtown Chicago and a cool, steely, stark white palette which gives the¬†space a minimalist modern and open aesthetic. It’s a must for anyone who happens to be in the area.

**I was there for the lunch menu.
