The Rotunda @ Neiman Marcus (San Francisco)

During my short trip to San Francisco to visit my sister in the beginning of September, I (surprisingly) did not eat out much. In fact, I barely went into the city, preferring instead to explore the natural attractions in the Bay Area. I did, however, had lunch at the gorgeous restaurant in Neiman Marcus in Union Square - the Rotunda. The stained glass ceiling was absolutely spectacular. 
Fresh lemonade ($4)
The amuse-bouche was a cup of concentrated chicken broth and a cheese puff on the side.

Girl & the Goat Revisit (Chicago)

A lot has changed since the last time I ate at the Girl & the Goat three years ago. Nowadays, it's nearly impossible to secure a reservation. If you're planning a trip there, my advice is to book early. When I tried booking in mid-July for a late August reservation, I found out that I couldn't get any reservations later than 4:30 pm and earlier than 10:30 until October. Eventually, after obsessively checking OpenTable a few times a day, I managed to snatch up an 8:45 pm cancellation.
Unibroue Ephemere Apple Fruit Beer ($8)
Thai chili bread ($4) with meyer lemon butter and piri piri 
It's a bummer that bread is not free here, but as someone totally obsessed with bread, I just had to order it. Personally, I thought that the Asian twist on this bread was interesting, but perhaps not my favourite.

The Gage (Chicago)

There was a heat wave on the weekend that I spent in Chicago and it was literally 40 degrees + outside. We couldn't spend too much time roaming around Millennium Park in the heat, so I was glad that our lunch venue, The Gage, was right across the street!  
Nothing pleases me more than to start off the meal with some warm and fluffy bread with butter.
