801 Grand Prix Fixe Menu

Ok, So I’ve written about this once before, but it’s worth another mention.  801 Grand Chophouse.  Aptly located at 801 Grand Avenue in Des Moines, has this super awesome Prix Fixe menu only offered on Sunday evenings.  It’s not an every Sunday type of meal, but if you’re celebrating a special occasion, you are sure […]

Bonefish Creole Menu

I was lucky enough to be invited in to try Bonefish’s seasonal menu this month!  They are featuring a New Orleans Creole-Style menu with lots of Cajun spices and we were excited to try it. Of course you know we are super fans of the Bang Bang Shrimp, Crab and Corn Chowder and martinis, so […]

Angry Goldfish

While we are on the subject of bars with good food….(See last week’s post about Barn Town Brewing), let’s talk about the new and exciting addition to the South Side, Angry Goldfish. We had heard they’ve been busy, so we called ahead and surprisingly, they let us make a reservation.  Brownie points right away for taking […]

Barn Town Brewing

  Barn Town Brewing is a new Brewery/Restaurant that just opened up on University in West Des Moines (on the Waukee border) near Jethros. Since we live close by, we were itching to get in to try it.  We love the local tap rooms, and love that you can bring your own food in, but […]

The Knotty Nail

Meet Becky!  She’s the Owner/Operator/Mastermind behind The Knotty Nail.

Winter Update!

Hello friends!  Whew!  Is December really almost gone?  I feel like we say it all the time, but time really does fly.  I wanted to update you all on our December happenings, so today you get a compilation post of everything from Thanksgiving to Christmas.  We’ll leave New Years for a separate post since we […]

Bonefish Winter Menu

    Luckily Bonefish Grill West Des Moines was gracious enough to invite us in to try their winter menu, since so many of you on social media already knew about this and didn’t tell me! When I posted this photo from the restaurant, I was flooded with messages saying it was everyone’s favorite! Well, […]

Great River Maple

I’ve been hearing about Great River Maple all over the place and finally reached out to them to send me some of the good stuff to try! We made it a pancake breakfast morning and got to enjoy their certified organic, grade A maple syrup!  So good!  We wanted to try it like this to get […]

Harvey’s

We legit have a new favorite restaurant!  It’s probably a good thing that Harvey’s is in Redfield, because if it were down the street, we may be there for every meal! I got a tip that Harvey’s was under new ownership and the new owners had hired an amazing chef and we needed to try […]
