    L’Albatros is my pick to try something new. I never go to French restaurants and would like to see what they offer.

    I would love to try Cowell and Hubbard, I have not been there yet and I am mildly obsessed with Fantasy Candies chocolate dipped cheese puffs.

    I’m curious about Table 45. It’s literally located on the campus I work at, yet I’ve never eaten there as I work nights and get off at 7:30am.
