When choosing a restaurant for a special occasion, it should come as no surprise that I look at the dessert menu first, which is the main reason I chose BO-beau to celebrate my 1-year wedding anniversary with my husband. The dessert that sold me on the restaurant was the chocolate souffle ($8) — something I’ve never actually ordered at a restaurant before. It also didn’t hurt that there were plenty of tasty entrees to choose from, including duck confit fettuccini, bowls of mussels, and a French bistro classic — steak frites.
Bakeries like Azúcar can be daunting. With a dizzying array of treats on offer (including cookies, cupcakes, and bars), it’s tempting to take the whole store home.

After some heated deliberation, I settled on the Azúcar Tiramisu ($6).
O.B. Smoothie Bar & Sub Shop has some crazy-good smoothies and subs, no doubt about it. But one of the tastiest items on the menu doesn’t get top billing on the sign: the acai bowls. Acai bowls, made with frozen acai puree (blended with soy milk or apple juice), are topped with granola, strawberries, bananas, frozen blueberries, and a drizzle of honey. It’s like eating a fruit salad on top of a smoothie slurry, with some granola thrown in for good measure (and extra crunch).
