Founder and CEO of social media marketing firm, Gossip Genie. I love Chicago and everything it has to offer, especially the amazing restaurants.
The food is delicious and the service was great. Our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. The restaurant itself is very chic and modern. Soy sauce was not readily available, which is unheard of at a sushi restaurant - it's not necessary at Arami. We loved everything we ordered! Make sure you try the Saki - it pairs well with the sushi and it's refreshing with the cucumbers in the glass. Arami is a hidden gem and I am glad Food Mafia helped me discovered this amazing sushi!

Restaurant: Saigon Sisters
Last night I had one of the best meals I have had in a long time. This place is incredible- the staff is extremely knowledgeable which makes for a fantastic experience. The wine selection was the best I have seen in Chicago. The ambiance enhances the food which is hard to make something so delicious even better. The preparation was as beautiful as the taste and the chef is not only a fabulous cook but an artist as well.

I went to Tavernita last night for my friend's birthday and it was the perfect spot for it. We ordered from the sharing menu and there was enough food to feed the 7 of us for a week. The vibe is young and hip with a European feel which relates to the Spanish cuisine. Each dish was better than the one before it and the sangria was delicious.

This place is a go-to for out of town guests that come to visit me. It never fails to disappoint, everything from their fun selection of martinis to delicious fish/meat options. It is elegant and fun with too many wonderful dishes to choose from.

Restaurant: Mon Ami Gabi
Mon Ami Gabi has the best steak frites in Chicago - the ambiance makes you feel like you are in a small cafe in Paris but the food portions are definitely for Americans. I love the decor and the food is always amazing, it's a romantic spot, perfect for a date.
