I have been so drenched in trying too many tasty top notch restaurants. But when I want to chose the best I always shift to Italian Cuisines. Especially the ones that has home made menu items and quite customized platters to choose. The exploration has lead in discovering this beautiful Italian restaurant "La Panetteria " , situated in Bethesda , Maryland. Serves the finest southern and northern Italian specialty foods. "La Panetteria" has won accolades from many food- critics and awarded the "Premier Italian Restaurant" in Bethesda , MD. This restaurant has been around for 25 years and has an impressive record in the Dining Industry.
Now when it comes to the personal experience , the appearance and the interiors inspired me to learn more about it. The management made sure they give a complete Italian experience to its customers making sure there is an italian aroma in the ambiance. To start with the menu - the wines on the cards exponentially increase the pleasure of dining in this restaurant. I always start with coffee in Italian cusines , since I love to check out if there is any difference in the way they brew there coffee , quite surprisingly it is always the best , not too harsh , not too soft. I love my coffee like that. Then comes the bread , this restaurant has the finest and fresh bread - soft in texture and superb in its taste. Below mentioned menu items are the ones in our order :
Antipasti ( Appetizer):
1. Mozzarella in Carrozza.
2. Zucchini Fritti.
1. Minestrone Alla Casalinga.
(Fresh Homemade Italian Thick Vegetable Soup).
1. Chicken and Fresh Tomato Pizza ( SM or LA).
The food experience and the service here is impeccable. The roof turned into a green paradise will give a pleasant dining experience. Even though this place looks small from outside , It can easily accommodate 200 customers during busy days. They have party services and catering services as a part of the business.
Thanks to the team of "La Panetteria" in participating in this shoot and helping us make a beautiful memory.
We would rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

August series "Not every breakfast can make your day, But this one does- Eggspectation
Your day is precious and you can make it one with a beautiful and healthy start. Never skip your breakfast that keeps your body in rhythm for the rest of the day. Breakfast replenishes the supply of glucose in the morning and breaks the overnight fasting . Provides blood sugar levels in proper proportions to make your brain work its best.
I have learnt it hard way , but I am loving how I left my old and unhealthy habits behind to keep my body well equipped with essential nutrients. By breakfast , we know - not every day we have time and energy to get the breakfast done at home. We ran past so many breakfast places , drive thrus and food chains. Yet we are always on a hunt for the best places to get tasty , fancy , nutritious breakfast. "Eggspection" is one such food chain which serves from breakfast to lunch to dinner. They call it “le cirque des œufs,” an all-day experience.
This is not our first time , hence the fascination for the place. It was , is and always an amazing experience for us to catch up with this place and add delight to our morning experience. It is'nt a justice to talk just about the food here , but this place has amazing interiors , which makes it feel like the breakfast is served under the twilight with some rustic properties.
Now to talk about food , our all time favorite menu items are:

2 Ellicot City, Md.
3. Silver Spring , Md. (closer to DC).
4. Owing Mills , Md.

All of the above listed places have beautiful breakfast , surrounded with beautiful interiors. And interesting part is the staff in this food chain . There treat every customer with so much warmth , that is all anybody would need to quick start a day in smiles. Hospitality is their first priority.
Finally "Eggspectation is not a breakfast or lunch or dinner , it is a remarkable experience".
