Bucket List

Sometime in 2012, I will leave the United States for a life in Asia. A new exciting career awaits. There will be more traveling. And there will certainly be more eating. Below, a list of restaurants I’ve bookmarked to visit.

I tried to focus and narrow down the list to a few choices per region; places to revisit are at the very bottom.

Japan has intentionally been left off– there are too many friends and books to consult before I even begin the task of drafting a list.

The world beckons.
