Racks- Boca Raton

I don’t even have the energy to write a good post about this. I reviewed a restaurant that is owned by Gary Rack called Table 42.. and I really enjoyed their unique pizza & salads. One would think that his namesake restaurant would be just as great, but I was displeased by the pizza. […]

Hot Pie- West Palm Beach

I always like to ask people which pizzeria is their favorite, especially in cities outside of Chicago. At my client’s office in West Palm Beach, pizzerias are plentiful, but they are not always the best.
