Last weekend I had the extraordinary pleasure of visiting Scarborough Fair, a quaint bed and breakfast nestled in the row houses along historic Charles Street in Baltimore, Maryland.

This charming property run by innkeeper Barry Werner is a unique oasis in the heart of the city.  Scarborough Fair is more than just a place to rest your head for the night, walking through the front gate feels like being welcomed into the home of an old friend.

Disney for Foodies: 5 New Dining Options

No Comments | Written on July 8, 2014 at 5:00 am , by

Welcome back to day two of our summer culinary travel series!  Yesterday we were in the wine country of California, and now we are going to hop all the way across the country to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

Of course, Disney World will always be an iconic location for family travel, but it is also quickly becoming a food-lovers travel destination as well.  I recently went back to Walt Disney World and explored five of their new dining options.  Make sure to add one or all of these to your next itinerary!

1)  Spice Road Table at Epcot

This is a brand new dining option at the Morocco pavilion inside Epcot.  The menu is Mediterranean small plates with a waterfront view that is second to none.

Tip:  Arrive around 7 or 7:30 for a leisurely meal.  Order a pitcher of the sparkling sangria to share and then linger at your table until the Epcot IllumiNations fireworks show.  You will have a front row seat to the spectacular display while sipping a fantastic evening cocktail!

We were there to celebrate a very joyous occasion, my sister’s wedding!  One of the main reasons she and my brother-in-law chose NOLA as their destination wedding location was, you guessed it, the food.

Am I nuts?  Or shall I say, am I “Cronuts?!”
