1. Dunkin Donuts
Julia Cavalieri: The employees here are incompetent.
2. Yes! Organic Market
Julia Cavalieri: Great wine selection here & usually a few bottles on sale. Decent sushi bar & coffee by the cup in the back. Practically everything costs 4.99 but I love this place.
3. Masa 14
Julia Cavalieri: The unlimited brunch is on-point. Definitely the most bang for your buck! Got to sample a ton of different things.
4. New York Deli
Julia Cavalieri: After a few cocktails, pile your friends into the awesome vintage photobooth at this place for a cool little keepsake.
5. Pearl Dive Oyster Palace
Julia Cavalieri: Great for pretty weather HH ($5 glasses of wine) when they open the bar onto the patio, but once it gets dark, head upstairs to Black Jack for a more laid back vibe.
6. Can Can Brasserie
Julia Cavalieri: I've tried so hard to like this place, but every time I go I have a terrible experience. Slow service & the food is nothing to write home about. I think I'm giving up.
7. Dunkin Donuts
Julia Cavalieri: #DD Lingo for a "lite" coffee: ask cashier for coffee w/ "less skim" + "less cream" + 2 packets of Splenda.
8. Bang Salon
Julia Cavalieri: Save yourself the headache & do not go to Johanne. Jessica is awesome.
Julia Cavalieri: the food here is surprisingly good. try the grilled portabello sandwich! amazing.
10. Sticky Rice RVA
Julia Cavalieri: TOTS, TOTS, TOTS, TOTS, TOTS, TOTS......EVERYBOOOODDYYYYYYYY
11. Pica Taco #2
Julia Cavalieri: Ask for the white sauce.
12. DC Noodles
Julia Cavalieri: You really can't go wrong here. Best pho I've had!
13. Local 16
Julia Cavalieri: Rodrigo is the best.
Julia Cavalieri: Don't fall for the "make it a double for $3 more" trap. The result= watered down, overpriced.
15. General Mitchell International Airport (MKE)
Julia Cavalieri: Bring a fully charged iPod because the music in this place is elevator music at best. They just played Fur Elise at my gate; it's almost like they want me to be ominous & depressed about my delay.
