You may know her from her big win in 2007 on hit TV show American Idol. Recently, she’s been pursuing some different passions of hers involving food. She began her own sweet and savory baking show called Heart of the Batter. From classic recipes passed down from her grandma to trendy new creations, she’s perfected it all. In addition to making her own creations, she’s had the chance to try some amazing food all across the nation - and lucky us, she filled us in on her go-to eateries. We encourage you to try some of her favorite foodie spots all across the nation.

Theater District
About the restaurant
Such a great spot next time you're in NYC for a Broadway show. I went there often while I was performing with In The Heights. It’s right in the heart of the theater district and is always so good for a quality Italian meal. The penne Bolognese is one of my favorite things on the menu.

The food was delicious- the portions were more than enough- the energy of the team was on point. We had everything we needed throughout and that was due to Leo’s excellent service. He was distractingly exceptional. I will return with friends. Thank you!

About the restaurant
The Mesquite Grilled Palacios Redfish is the best redfish I've ever tasted. On the way out they give you fresh pralines - yum! There is so much to love about this place. One cool dessert tip - if you order the banana foster they make it tableside for you and it's delicious.

Loved lunch menu that was featured in June. Food was delicious: for starters, house salad and gumbo, entrees of shrimp po boy with fries, eggs benedict (LOVE) with asparagus tips and fresh baby tomatoes. Brennan's bread pudding with Bourbon sauce for dessert is always a treat. Service was good and had a very enjoyable time. Can't wait to go back.

About the restaurant
One word - meatballs! Also, six words – twenty-layer peanut butter chocolate cake! Lavo has such a great atmosphere and is the perfect spot to go when on vacation in Vegas. I crave both of these signature Lavo dishes and always get them whenever I have the opportunity to dine there.

Great atmosphere, food was very delicious, priced about right for a fancy restaurant on the Las Vegas strip. Also there cocktails are really tasteful.

About the restaurant
The sushi here is so fresh and the restaurant is just minutes from the water. I love just getting a bunch of different kinds of sashimi. If you can, try and sit at the sushi bar and watch them prepare all of the delicious rolls.

About the restaurant
There is nothing better than sitting on terrace of this restaurant and soaking up the view. My ideal night here is relaxing on the terrace with a crisp glass of Rose.

Sumptuous food with generous servings. Pampered service. Too expensive.
