Wow, time flies! Licious is back for July 3 to 26. Prix fixe menus vary from $18, $23, $28 for lunch and $25, $35, $45 for dinner.

Delysees ★★★1/2

Delysees has been the talk of the town with my foodie friends. With so much buzz and temptation of macarons, I decided I had to pay a visit! Walking in, the decor is definitely contemporary – lots of glass, white walls and metal chairs. There is a good amount of seating available, with even a…

Momofuku – Daishō ★★★

Price: $200-600 for large formats This review of Momofuku Daishō is really long overdue. I dined here a while back as a group of four and since the menu apparently changes daily, note that whatever we ordered might not be available. Our group chose the fried chicken, which we had to tear in pieces and wrap in…

Price: Over $30+ Decided to try a new restaurant with some foodie friends this year and after a vote, settled on the $25 lunch menu at Stock in Trump International Hotel & Tower. Right as I walked in, I noticed the pretty interior decor of the hotel. I thought the lobby was really nice if…
