restaurant week at mcpolish

25 Jul

Here at McPolish, you may have noticed that we like food. (And by “we” I mean “I”. I’m just trying to be royal, okay? Jeezy creezy, cut a girl some slack. Sometimes when you wake up in the morning you must look in the mirror and say, “Today, I am a princess.” Because if you don’t, no one else will.)

(This is actual advice my sisters and I were given by a manicurist at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa. We were there for either #1 or #2’s [I can’t remember which one?] wedding primp party, and this advice—so true, so true—was delivered to us with great sincerity and emphasis. And slightly threateningly as well. Every day I wake up and I say this to myself not because I always believe it, but more because I am terrified that a stocky Russian woman will come barging into my bathroom while I’m putting on my makeup and startle me enough that I’ll poke myself in the eye with my mascara and while I’m trying to save my eyesight she’ll be demanding loudly that I say morning gratitudes to myself. And really, I don’t need that in the morning.)


Oh right.

Restaurant Week!

This is totally different than Food Week at McPolish. Because this time I’m focusing on restaurants that I’ve been to lately, and the food I eat there. Not food I make in my own home. (Although that would be a pretty sweet restaurant. I’m a fucking awesome cook if I do say so myself. And I do.)

So sit back and enjoy the next few days of posts featuring some restaurants that I would definitely recommend you give a whirl.

And as a PSA for dining out—don’t forget to tip your waiters and waitresses. Listen, I just got out of a 15-year relationship with the food service industry, so I may be a little sensitive to this subject, but just trust me on this. Don’t be an asshole, don’t shortchange your server.

    […] to make amends: the argonaut So I kind of f-ed things up a bit with that whole “Restaurant Week” theme the other week, didn’t I? Not so much a “week” as it was “two days.”  I swear […]
