(Almost) Italy-bound


Bistek Florentine, as authentically prepared in Florence, Italy

Bistek Florentine in Florence

Although I have a few more reviews I’m hoping to get posted before then, in two days I’m off for two weeks in Italy. Of course, enjoying the food there is one of my top priorities (weight loss goals for the year be damned!) I will be spending most of the first week in Florence, which I haven’t visited since 2006. Then spending a few days for the first time in Siena before most of the second week in Milan, another city I’ve never been before (besides Florence, I’ve only ever been to Venice and Rome in Italy). So this blog will likely be silent until toward the end of June, when I promise to return with lots of detailed dining reports from these three cities.

My partner is also quite excited about the trip and has one absolute must food objective: enjoying another incredible Bistek Florentine. I think this time around I’ll join him.
