Itzocan Cafe ( Ave A and 9th) and Butter Lane ( Ave A and seventh)

 A supposed mix of French and  Mexican, I thought this place was pretty good.  I ordered the fried goat cheese ravioli with various salsas and the special which was sweet corn asparagus soup-- so yummy.  Also ate copious amounts of the freshly made guacamole, which was really delicious, although it should be at $8.00 dollars a pop.   Ended up spending a little more than the quoted $20, at about $25, but I think it is doable for less if you skip the two servings of guacamole.

As as whole.. I give it 4 stars. Pretty yummy.  A little overpriced. But cool vibe.

Butter Lane is a cupcake place that I personally think rivals Magnolia.  No line, which is always a plus, and the $1 frosting shots off the twenty (or so) flavor list is pretty great. Got the cream cheese frosting. Oh yeah.  The couple sitting there when we got there said that the burnt sugar flavor was to die for.  Also they have monthly cupcake classes- which sound dangerously helpful.

4. 5 stars!

 Till next week :)
