Must Order: Avocado Toast

The best part of Jake’s—aside from tasting the delicious food—is taking drool-worthy Instagram pics and making followers feel the #FOMO. Try their super-popular Avocado Toast (they have several to choose from) which is as striking on your feed as it is delicious.

Be sure to bring your Insta A-Game to The Venue and capture their beautiful, award-winning sushi in this wonderfully modernistic spot. If the sun is out, beautiful natural lighting shines in through the large windows, leaving no need to use a filter on the snap-worthy Lollipop Roll.

Must Order: Classic German Pancake

The Classic German Pancake is such a fun dish to post on Instagram because sweets are seriously trending. When you order these pancakes they come with your choice of berry filling or maple caramel apple, drizzled with cream cheese icing and finished off with some powdered sugar and whipped cream.

Must Order: Crab Legs at Buffet

Hotels are really more like private photo studios, and at the JW Marriott’s Rockwood Grill, guests can enjoy a full menu of American classics at the Buffet that are Insta-ready. But the real star of the show is the oversized crab legs that are so large they fall over the side of the plate.

Cotton Candy Dreams

Must Order: Lulu’s Cotton Candy

Add an element of fun with an oversized Champagne glass filled to the brim with Lulu’s Cotton Candy. This pink sensation is not only Insta-worthy, but so delish, you may find yourself eating in between takes. Try your best to sneak a shot before you take a bite.

Oodles of Noodles

Must Order: Crispy Beef Egg Noodles

This popular noodle dish is one of the most snapped items on the menu, and you can’t visit this restaurant without ordering a bowel for your feed and your belly. Take a pic when it first comes to the table or even mid-bite, as you might not be able to stop yourself from immediately chowing down.
