On Fridays, we feature five food finds selected by local chefs and personalities.  This week’s picks come from Tyler Teass, sous chef at Clifton Inn.  On Monday, November 12, Clifton Inn will host a four-course wine dinner with pairings from Blenheim Vineyards.  Teass’ picks:

1)  Nugget’s Raw Kombucha at City Market.   I love all fermented foods, and all of their flavors of kombucha are really tasty.

2)  Cocktails at 9 1/2 SpeakeasyIt’s got great cocktails, and they keep it quiet.  It’s a great place for after work drinks or dates.

3)  Vegetable Soup with Bread and Butter on the late night menu at C&ODelicious and hits the spot especially now since the weather’s gotten colder.  Plus, they play great music.

4)  Duet of Lamb “Greek Style” at Ivy InnAngelo is the nicest guy ever and makes awesome food.  His gyros are worth the trip to Ivy alone. 

5)  Larb at Thai SiamIt’s one of a kind and I constantly crave their food.
