1. Doughmonkey, Snyder Plaza's answer to Heaven on Earth, is closing its doors for good.
I read this yesterday afternoon on the Guidelive Eats blog not minutes after having a conversation with a friend about the next time we'd be heading over that way for some of Rhonda's amazing chocolate chip cookies and jewel-like gems of handcrafted artisan chocolate. I could go on and on about the proliferation of status-shops pushing $5 boulders in cupcake wrappers and wonder aloud about why a place like Doughmonkey can't seem to stay afloat. But I won't.
2. Check out the awesome review of the Landmark Restaurant in the Guide today!
I had the unique pleasure of dining at the Landmark recently with a dear friend on a 4-course menu prepared by Chef Jeff himself. I can attest to the review's accuracy - the food was awesome, and Chef Jeff is definitely a rising star. Really nice guy, too. Big Congrats!
