I'm delighted to have Julia Karr here on the blog today as a promotional tour for her new book Truth, which is a sequel to her debut novel XVI. In order to get to know Julia better, I asked her what are her top 10 restaurants and this is her list:

Julia Karr's Top 10 Favorite Restaurants

1. Chicago Diner (in Chicago) - I love, love, LOVE this restaurant! Being a vegetarian, it’s like walking into heaven!

2. The Owlery - (in Bloomington, IN) - Same reason as the Chicago Diner - the food is fabulous and everything is either vegetarian or vegan!

3. Ramsi’s Cafe on the World (in Louisville, KY) - It’s the best restaurant for having everything to satisfy both vegans and unrepentant carnivores!

4. Athena Restaurant (in St. Augustine, FL) - A great little Greek restaurant! I’ve had many a (veggie) Christmas dinner there!

5. The Tasting Room (in St. Augustine, FL) - Excellent food (tapas), wine, and music!

6. Muddy Boots Cafe (in Nashville, IN - not TN) - Best bean soup in the world!

7. 605 Grille (in Madison, IN) - The quiche is yummy and the bartender is a hoot!

8. Soul Vegetarian East (in Chicago) - Go there for Sunday dinner! You will NOT be disappointed!

9. Ed’s Cantina & Grille (in Estes Park, CO) - Excellent Mexican!

10. The Dragon (in Bloomington, IN) - Maybe not the best Chinese restaurant ever - but when you want Dragon Homestyle Bean Curd, nothing else will do!

Thank you for stopping by, Julia! Readers, if you would like to learn more about Julia and her books, please visit her website, on her Facebook page, and on Twitter.

Nina Oberon’s life has changed enormously in the last few months. When her mother was killed, Nina discovered the truth about her father, the leader of the Resistance. And now she sports the same Governing Council–ordered tattoo of XVI on her wrist that all sixteen-year-old girls have. The one that announces to the world that she is easy prey to predators. But Nina won’t be anyone’s stereotype. And when she joins an organization of girls working within the Resistance, she knows that they can put an end to one of the most terrifying secret programs the GC has ever conceived. Because the truth always comes out...and the consequences can be deadly.

    I would like to visit the one with the delicious quiche and the entertaining bartender. Indiana, here I come!

    Really looking forward to reading Truth, I enjoyed XVI!!

  2. FOOD! It's my favorite thing in the world! I'll have to make sure to keep these restaurants i mind if I ever find myself in those areas. I've heard a lot about how many fine-dining places there are in Chicago.

    And I don't think I ever realized there was another Nashville. LOL

  3. Dragon Homestyle Bean Curd? LOL! That sounds very interesting. I'm one of the unrepentant carnivores. Give me a giant cheeseburger and I'm happy. But, after that list I have an inkling for soup. I could really go with a creamy potato or something. Gosh, now I'm hungry!

  4. Oh if I'm in Estes, I'm going to have to check out Ed’s Cantina & Grille.

    omg I LOVE the Athena Restaurant! St. Augustine is such a great place for the different and exotic and their tapas are such a great reflection of that. Yay that Julia loves it to!

    Great guest post! And also a good reminder for me to try XVI, which I meant to read but temporarily forgot about.

  7. Bummer I don't see any Portland Oregon restaurants on the list. After reading Some Girls Bite and looking at this list I am thinking I need to visit Chicago!
