For us, a new year means new opportunities to explore newly opened restaurants, and to revisit our old favorites. And we ate pretty dang good last month! Here’s a roundup of where we stopped in. (If you’re pretending to eat better for your New Year’s Resolution or if you’re the Dry January type, this post might not be for you. Sorry not sorry.) 🙂

Portillos – highly anticipated opening in The Colony
