reviewed Cupcake Royale
I love cupcakes. Cupcake Royale had the best cupcakes in town. I'm even a FOCR. However, I have to say that about 6 months ago that changed. They must have changed their recipe or something. The tops are always a bit chewy these days. I bet it was to help the frosting process or something, but it is a big downer each and EVERY time I eat a cupcake these days. Makes me die a bit inside each time.
My favorite is (The Gay in June) the Royale with Cheese, his favorite is Triple Threat. We get one of each, cut them in half, and enjoy.

reviewed Panevino Trattoria
We knew we would be regulars after the first time we visited. Our party was pretty large, they have tables along the wall that they can push together and make a comfortable space. One of our orders was confused. The owner brought us the mistaken meal and rushed back to make the correct one. Everyone at the table took a bite and we all decided it was the best thing on the table, which was the gnocchi tartufati. When we finished, he brought us all free glasses of his favorite digestif.
Now my boyfriend and I go once every one to two weeks. The waiters aren't the best, but they are very very nice. The food is always absolutely amazing. My one complaint is that the space is rather loud. The acoustics are just poor, but I can deal with it.
And they have Mac 'n' Jacks. For goodness sake, more places need MnJ's.
