en route to Vernazza via La Fourchette in Avignon, France…

Once upon a time, I visited Vernazza. It may be the most romance-y place of all time. It’s certainly the most romantic spot I’ve ever been. When I’m in a romantic place, I usually feel like eating, which I realize is at least mildly George Costanza-esque. So be it.

When in Vernazza, I was lucky enough to have a book at hand (Rick Steves) to guide me to tried-and-true restaurants in the quaint, coastal Mediterranean town. We stayed two nights, and in those 48 hours, I ate at exactly two places – thrice at one and twice at the other. I was thankful to have access to those recommendations and even more pleased someone else had done the legwork for me; i.e.: grimacing through meals at less desirable spots and crossing them off the list.

And now, in the spirit of being a good neighbor via this blog, my goal is to provide you with similar recommendations for local and not-so-local eateries. I’m also hoping to minimize my experiences at the less desirable spots, which is why I’m picking the brains of locals who know the gold from the proverbial pyrite.

So, bon appetite! I hope these blog posts lead to a tasty dinner or two for you and the people with whom you dine. Ciao!
