Since we’re not only foodies here at CookIt, but also travelers, we are always discovering new and delicious places in our hometowns and when we travel. Here are some of the places we’ve been lately and can’t help raving about!
I was lucky enough to spend a couple of weekends in Palm Springs recently, the perfect antidote to LA sometimes! There was plenty of pool time and vintage shopping, but also a couple of great meals: Workshop Kitchen + Bar and Mister Parker’s were the standouts! Workshop has one of the town’s prettiest patios, and offers creative, seasonal dishes that really deliver. Mister Parker’s, located in the Parker hotel, is a crazy mix of dark wood, flea market art, loud classic rock and traditional French favorites, like steak au poivre. Only Jonathan Adler could pull it off! Laurie, CEO + Founder
I didn’t think I was a frozen yogurt fan until I tried Culture: An American Yogurt Company in the West Village. Now I want to go every week! They rotate their flavors each week and my favorite combo lately is the dark chocolate with balsamic strawberries. Netanya, Social Media Manager
It feels like we’ve had a slew of visitors lately, giving us an excuse to go to some of our fave and impressive spots. La Esquina’s Brasserie is definitely one of our top picks to impress out-of-towners. When you walk up, it looks like a small diner-like taco spot (which is also very good), but once you go through a door and down some stairs, you’ll come across a massive hidden restaurant. Order a bunch of appetizers, tacos, and cocktails and you’ll be set. Don’t forget about the Elotes Callejeros too! Anna, Brand Strategist
We rarely go out for Chinese food, but Denver’s Hop Alley has been a recent game-changer. This modern (yet unpretentious) Chinese restaurant features spicy shared plates and creative cocktails. I’m all about their veggie fried rice, but my husband swears by the Beijing duck roll. Edie, Account Manager
