  1. I stopped by Le Meilleur du Monde about a month ago to welcome them to the neighborhood and Millicent was such a sweetheart. I tried the homemade ice cream and let me tell you… it was excellent. I loathe the flavor combination in eggnog, but she convinced me to try it nonetheless. I did and was shocked to discover that her version of eggnog ice cream is delicious. I suggest anyone who has taste buds in their mouth go try it for his or herself. And then get a pint or two to take home for the holiday!

  2. Glad to see another spot opening up – also an FYI that Charles of Charles Southern Style Kitchen has re-opened his 8th Ave restaurant and takout spot after being closed for 4-6 months. It’s been open a month or so but glad to see one place re-opening. I wish Vinegar Hill would do the same but think that place is toast. Loved their pizza.
