Have a recommendation? We'd LOVE to hear it!
Salutations Readers!

Kalamazoo has good food.
Great food, in fact. We have made it our mission to check out all the local eateries one at a time - and more for our own poor memories than any other reason, we'll be chronicling our adventures in food here. And some places float our boats way more than others, which is why we have developed the very scientific
five golden forks rating scale. Ok. It is not scientific at all. It is actually quite unscientific. But, it is something. And now, you can search all of our reviews by the forks rating. YAY!

But, wait! There's more!
Kalamazoo Foodies no longer just eat at restaurants then review them. There are recipes posted, some easy, some less easy, all delicious. There are, or will be, book reviews, the new
Foodie Movie Review-y which will focus on movies about food or ones that have a lot of beautiful food in them. There are other food musings, and hopefully soon contests and so much more. But, Foodie Friends, it is all about food. Because we love it!
And, we want to hear from you!

We want to hear your comments on our recipes and reviews. We want to know where you love to eat. And, we are looking for GUEST bloggers to broaden our horizons a bit. And, if you haven't found us on Facebook, you should do that too. Like our page for other fun Foodies stuff like photos, polls, and more.

SO KALAMAZOO PATRONS - where do YOU love to eat? Because we'd love to check it out and share our thoughts here. Give us a comment below, and quickly! Our tummies are grumbling in anticipation.

A Note from the Foodies about our typical fair:
So, you may notice as you read our blog that we often order the same thing wherever we go. OK, maybe not quite, but we do often order similar things. Kristin has her caprese salads and mushroom dishes. Kate has her baked goat cheese and things with tofu. Well, readers, we wanted to let you know that this is absolutely intentional. A) We love those things, so why not order what you love? And, B) It is a lot easier to compare apples to apples than it is to compare apples to comquats. So, we like to order similar things to have a good sense of how to compare them. Just wanted to let you in on that little secret. Bon appetit!

McGinnis Landing

Kristin: Strawberry Florentine Salad
I checked out McGinnis as a working lunch today, and was quite happy with my meal. It's a sports themed restaurant, which is usually not my bag, but the atmosphere had a pretty TGIFridays kind of thing going on- so there was a lot to look at for my semi-ADD attention span.
I feel like this would be a decent place for a quick dinner with a date, because the menu had both manly things like hamburgers (which my staff were quick to note tasted more like ground steak while licking the remaining hamburger carnage from their fingers), and more "prissy" dishes like the strawberry salad that I ordered.
It was a really good combo of flavors - spinach with feta, almonds, fresh sliced strawberries and a strawberry vinaigrette that really meshed well with the rest of the ingredients. I cleaned my plate and it was just the right amount to make me satisfied.
All in all a good lunch.
three golden forks out of five.
