Elmo’s Diner

Everyone needs diner food every once in awhile. My diner of choice in Chapel Hill is Elmo’s. It's technically in Carrboro, but close enough.  Elmo's has been my go-to for the past four years. From breakfast to lunch and dinner, I’m always pleased with my meal. The food: To start, the menu is like a small …

Tupelo Honey

I spent last weekend in Knoxville, Tennessee for a conference. For me, a new city always means new restaurants.   But because of the nature of the conference, we were limited to only one meal on our own in Knoxville. The group I was with decided on Tupelo Honey, which to be completely honest, I …
