Dana Ferrante '17 and Caroline F. Gentile '17, the co-founders of food blog The Crimson Crave, look fondly at their Instagram page.
Drink Recommendation: The Spicy Monkey Smoothie from the O2 Yoga Vegan Cafe ($6.38 inc. tax). As the name suggests, this smoothie contained bananas, chocolate, and cayenne pepper--perfect for a cold day.
Appetizer Recommendation: Datiles from Orinoco's ($7.50). Bacon will never not be good, but it was even better than usual when wrapped around almond-stuffed dates. Orinoco's serves Venezuelan food with a modern twist.
Dessert/Pastry Recommendation: Macaroons from Darwins Ltd. ($4.95 for 3). These little pastries were chewy, yet crispy, and covered in frosting--FM preferred the chocolate.
Entree Recommendation: Fried Plantain Sandwich from Clover ($6.00). This is the sandwich version of Gretchen Wiener's hair: big and full of secrets. All the very colorful ingredients came together beautifullyr--FM was pleasantly surprised.
Entree Recommendation: Guinness Burger from Charlie's Kitchen. This burger had cheese smothered on both of its substantial onion-infused patties, and was a welcome alternative to the monotony of Tasty Burger.
