  1. this is going to cost me!

  2. I’m shocked you haven’t started listing Boston eateries!

  3. They are coming soon!

  4. It’s funny. I have decided to do the same. We must watch the same shows on Food Network. Last Friday night I had dinner at Naglee Park Garage (to see if I could get over my childhood loathing for Brussels Sprouts) and not long ago I had ice cream at Humphry Slocombe! Although I live in San Jose, I was born & grew up in Belfast, Northern Ireland so #6 is well taken care of…

  5. Aly, I was addicted to the Food Network…weaning myself off slowly. Just made it to Naglee too.

  6. I wouldn’t waste your time or money going to Brix instead I would recommend going to ZuZu’s in Napa…Spanish Tapas that are absolutely sure and get the apple empanada with carmel lime sauce for dessert!!

  7. Amelia, I have heard good things about ZuZu. I will make it there some day.

  8. Eat raw chicken in Japan
    Eat raw pork in Dresden, Germany (like beef tartar)

    (i know both sound disgusting/unsafe by US food standards, but then keep in mind what US food standards are…………)

  9. I don’t think I’m that adventurous….
