Dear Ritz-Carlton, I can’t quit you. xx
Then again, you know this already. You simply call my name and I’m willing to drop everything to spend time with you. Court me with dinner, drinks, a sunset and great company, then I’m yours forever. Pinky swear.
During a recent dinner at Raya (sans JetSet Tot), I wanted to share some of the delicious seasonal menu options I had the opportunity to taste. Fine dining can often be a little over-the-top for young J.I.T. (jetsetters in training;) however everything I nibbled on would instantly get the JetSet Tot seal of approval! In fact, I cannot wait for her to experience it for herself. I already know JetSet Dad is going to do backflips! And just incase, Raya not only has a fantastic menu for children, but one especially for Sunday brunch as well.
I’m not a picky eater, but I love to pick and I love to nibble. When we dine out, I would rather get a ‘little bit of everything’ or a few apps to share rather than commit to an entree myself. So these flatbreads and lobster tacos were bites of heaven out of a dream. I did order the scallops and I could not have been happier. They were delicious, and so flavorful. In fact, all of the dishes were perfect.
