Wish You Were (Still) Here

Grocery stores, recipes, cook books, CSAs, farmers' markets, organic, local, processed, corporate. It's a smorgabord!

Point taken. Nobody is. Just a bit of bemoaning the loss while remembering fondly.

Really miss Rennebohm's breakfasts. #9= 2 eggs, toast and hashbrowns for $1.49. Couldn't be beat.

Oh yes, I miss Canterbury too.

Not saying it is gone, but I haven't seen Loose Juice at the farmer's market lately. Anyone know what's up?

Bev's Diner. Loved the bread and the 5 mushroom quiche.

I liked the original Hatch Cover. Great food, view and salad bar (one of the first) and the waiters all seemed to have been chosen from the junior varsity gymnastics team. Golf shirts, ice cream pants and waist aprons on young pictures of health.

I registered just so I could say that Josie's was gross. My ex-girlfriend used to work there, and even as a poor college student no way I was going to eat that trash (circa 2000).

The whole place was very unsavory, from clientèle to ownership, and the sauce was just reconstituted sysco crap. For real!

Olive Garden is gourmet compared to that nastiness.

So, I can't really think of any good pasta restaurants at the moment. My first job was washing dishes at the old Lombardino's (circa 1994), also nothing to write home about, honestly.

How soon we miss you. Porky Pine Pete's.

A agree that Josie's was subpar Italian.

I suspect that was sarcasm from kissyfish, but who knows?

Nope, no sarcasm, I do love that place...

It is cheap and cheerful.

I hope this is just a two moth sabbatical for soul food research purposes.

I am sad to hear about Pete's, yes sad indeed

Is that something like a three-dog night?

Assuming those moths represent months, you're a little off in your counting. We're going into Month 6 of Doug's closedness.

A few places off the top of my head:

Pel'meni: The best drunk food ever and the only food I've ever seen people literally get into fisticuffs over.

Louisianne's Kitchen on Monroe St: I used to go here because I worked on Monroe and it was convenient, even though I think I'm the only person who ever went there. They had a pulled pork sandwich with hot pepper jelly and blue cheese coleslaw that was to die for. I'm salivating right now just thinking about it...

Caspian Cafe: Their kuku sabzi was incredible.
