What to See and Where to Eat in San Francisco – a Traveler’s Guide to a Beautiful San Francisco Experience

San Francisco Travel Guide- What to See, where to eat. www.CourtneyPrice.com

San Francisco is such an unusual city, full of unique architecture, fabulous food, unreal antiques and art, and stunning views. Because of the previous posts I have done reviewing several San Francisco restaurants, I have received requests for more on what to do when in The Golden Gate City.  SO… I assembled a guide (the one that I wished for when I visited) to provide and overview and specifics to help plan a visit:

Iconic San Francisco photo-worthy views

famous historical landmarks

San Fran historical tidbits (San Francisco history is juicy)

beautiful areas of the city worth exploring

insider tips on some great places to shop, especially if you are into design or antiques

 If you are a foodie, take notes and prepare to plan ahead with reservations… these suggestions are seriously good.  Head over to Huffington Post Travel to Explore San Francisco in photographic detail~ and if I missed any of your favorite places, please be sure to mention them in the comment section.

Paris: Portrait of a City

Paris – the capital of love and photography:

 Paris, Portrait of a City leads us through what Goethe described as a “universal city where every step upon a bridge or a square recalls a great past, where a fragment of history is unrolled at the corner of every street”.  The history of Paris is recounted in photographs ranging from Daguerre’s early incunabula to the most recent images – an almost complete record of over a century and a half of [Read more...]

Restaurant & Bar Design

Restaurant And Bar Design on www.CourtneyPrice.com

Once upon a time, in a gastronomic land far away, a restaurant or bar that merely sated our appetite was deemed good enough. This land no longer exists. Our attitudes and expectations about where we want to meet, play, drink and eat have drastically changed. It’s now as much about pleasing the eye as pleasing the taste buds to endure a fulfilling dining experience.

The Restaurant & Bar Awards are the only awards in the world dedicated to the design of food and beverage spaces. That covers every imaginable type of space, from ships to airports, museums to burger vans, from revered Michelin-starred establishments to the fleeting dynamism of pop-ups. The awards have been turned into a book that is thoroughly enjoyable – and quite easy to get lost in for hours at a time.

This book is a visual feast that every designer should experience-  obviously for the creativity and brilliant concepts and details, but also for an insight to what is happening in the industries of design, architecture and gastronomy. Come feast your eyes and you will see what I mean… [Read more...]

It is light, healthy and incredibly flavorful. Now when I return to NYC I am always on the lookout for this same salad, but I do not find it.  No matter, it is quick and easy enough to make at home and perfect for entertaining. FYI, this is not one to make in advance because of the avocados.  [Read more...]
