My limitations were:
- Be within walking distance of the hotel.
- Satisfy food cravings.
Yelp helped me find some:
Line & Lariat. A lot.
Here's a gluttony breakdown, day by day [long post]:
Line & Lariat:
Roasted Brussels Sprouts (had leftovers for later)
Chile (so delicious that I had it again on Sunday)
Breakfast looks promising (from Room Service menu).
FridayBreakfast (and Lunch) at Line & Lariat
|My spot. This is where I sat every time I ate in the dining area.|
|10% discount for artists! Woohoo!|
Migas. Did not disappoint.
Made soft tacos for later with the beans and tortillas. (Very necessary).
The waitress gave me a superior Chipotle Salsa, which I poured onto my leftovers.
I craved a scone. I got Tres Leches from Treacherous Leches.
I made it last all day.
I craved a country breakfast, specifically grits and eggs.
After much Yelping (and a lot of delicious sounding places are closed during the weekend in downtown) I settled on Toasters Cafe. Walking over there was lovely -- I'll post pix in another post.
|Surprise! Mexican Coffee with Cinnamon! This when I simply asked for coffee.|
I was still craving that scone.
On my way back from Toasters, I stopped at (very busy) Boomtown Coffee Main Street Cafe.
No scones (sad face).
Got Cinnamon Cake instead upon advice from a "regular" waiting in the line in front of me.
It complemented the free Hotel Icon Caffeine Buffet coffee, but was no scone.
Dinner at 9:30pm
SundayBreakfast (and Lunch)
Mas inhouse Migas.
It worked on Friday and I didn't want another Sad Salad situation.
Embellished with Pico de Gallo
Got a ToGo cup of Chili from the bar (waited for it). So good! (no photo)
MondayBreakfast (and Lunch and Later)
La Calle Tacos
Chilaquiles [huge portion that I carted to the airport but couldn't finish].
Esquite (Elote off the cob). So good. Packed into checked bag so Severo could taste it.
