places i've eaten

below is a comprehensive list of all the notable restaurants i have visited since 2009. clicking the restaurant name will take you to my review. if a review is not linked, it means either the meal took place pre-blog, my pictures turned out horribly, or too much time passed after the meal and a legitimate writeup could not be completed. i do not post about every meal i have, so the numbers next to the restaurant names do not necessarily represent the total number of visits i have made to each restaurant.
