Review: TAKA Asbury Park

While on a quick weekend trip to Ocean Grove, New Jersey, I visited TAKA in Asbury Park. A quick, 10-minute walk from our bed and breakfast took us to the trendy heart of the ocean town. I have been to this restaurant before, but, due to the pandemic, I did not have the full experience of sitting inside. This time around I did and was ecstatic about sitting inside instead of in the street for outdoor dining.

Pizzeria Beddia Review

In 2015, Bon Appétit named Pizzeria Beddia the best pizza in America. Originally a take-out-only shop, the current location opened in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood in March 2019. Curious to experience the hype, my husband and I recently had dinner at the restaurant with another couple.

Zahav Review

Zahav is one of Philadelphia’s most coveted reservations. The Israeli restaurant won Outstanding Restaurant at the 2019 James Beard awards, among other accolades. I had plans fall through to dine at Zahav a few times, but I finally dined there this month.

Rodney Scott’s BBQ Review

Rodney Scott’s BBQ opened in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2017. Scott began barbecuing at a young age at his parents’ variety store and restaurant. His specialty is whole hog barbecue; a technique of smoking an entire splayed hog over a wood-fired barbecue pit. In 2018, Scott was named Best Chef: Southeast by the James Beard Foundation. He was recently featured on Netflix’s Chef’s Table: BBQ. His restaurant has a second location in Birmingham, Alabama. A third is slated to open soon in Atlanta, Georgia.
