My Last Three

Lunch at Santorini's: They've moved from their Virginia Street location to Prospect just east of Fountain Square but they're still serving the best Greek food in town. The platters for lunch are enormous but worth it (the marinated fish kabobs, oh *yes*!) Hint: Get two portions of the dill sauce. Plus perfectly crispy, soft pita bread.

Dinner at Ruth's Chris Downtown: After crazy travel schedules, nutty deadlines, and football season, it's been tough to schedule our weekly girls dinner. Last week, we were so ready for a drink, it didn't even matter it was a Monday night. After crab cakes and my favorite Ruth's Chris Chop salads, along with great wine, we were happy to let the new GM Ryan talk us into cigars. It was, quite simply, fantastic.

And wine from Kahn's: Hit the Diamond in the Rough Sale with a wonderful friend of mine visiting from out of town. I love tasting with someone who's on exactly the same page. We tasted expensive reds commando style -- hopping all over for first tastes of the best ones. Star of the evening? The Super Tuscan Sette Pointe Oreno 1999 -- absolutely incredible! And drinking for every penny's worth of its $119 a bottle. No word on how many six-bottle cases were available at only $532 each. Our purchases? We split cases of a knockout Rancho Zabaco Syrah 1999 and a splurged on a great Chateau Sourverain Reserve Cab 2000. No word yet on availabilities.

Santorini's is amazing. This is one of the few place in town that has top-shelf food and also feels welcoming to families like us with young kids. We love it.
