Yada Yada

Doug, peter and I walked over to the Yada Yada Bakery Cafe today for takeout lunch. I ordered Lentil soup, a BLT, and lemonade. Both were quite tasty. The price was about the same as at the Metro deli.

Next visit, I'll try some of their pastries.

Live music will be playing from 6:30–9:30 PM, and gift certificates to local breweries, salons and wineries will be raffled off. Diners will also have the chance to participate in the restaurant's first ever “Crab-Off,” which will award a $100 gift certificate to the person who can eat 4½ lbs. of crab in the shortest amount of time (11:30 AM–10 PM; free admission, $85 to participate in the Crab-Off; 617-426-2722).

Kona Bistro

I'm going to go out on a limb and write a review about a really good lunch spot in Oxford, Ohio: the Kona Bistro. We ate there on Monday in between client meetings.

I had this great pasta dish with chicken, spinach, pine nuts, sun-dried tomatoes, ziti, and bacon bits in a light cream sauce. It was great! It wasn't until I visited the restaurant's web site that I knew they have two locations; one in Oxford and a second in Cincinnati.
