Brunch At Spina

I’ll admit that I don’t often go to Italian restaurants for brunch (no particular reason), but after my first outing to Spina (review here) & the excellent food we had, I was willing to give it a try.  I arrived with two friends late on a Sunday, in fact we were the only ones left […]

The Meatball Factory (Closed)

Meatballs seem to be ‘trending’ right now, so when I got an invite from McKenzie of MMMGuide to sample some of the food at The Meatball Factory, she didn’t have to ask me twice.  The ‘Factory’  opened about 3 months ago & serves salad, pizzas, fettuccine & obviously meatballs.
