Hmmm....now to start working on my Colorado/Utah List- only 4  months away..
Funny thing is we're going to New York (Just NJ and Long Island) next weekend,  weather permitting and I have no idea where we will be going for meals. The only thing I do know is we'll be visiting friends and checking out https://www.nps.gov/sahi/index.htm
 
Now back to your "what's for dinner" thread.....

Dale, if you have a little extra time it would be well spent in Staunton, "The Queen City of the Shenandoah Valley".  It is rich in both Victorian architecture and dining possibilities.  It exudes charm and is one of those places that, when visiting, is guaranteed to generate wistful though of living there -- something I had the good fortune to do for nearly six most enjoyable years and many wonderful meals at Mrs. Rowe's (which was there even before I-81).
 
Jim
 
Edit:  BTW, did you ever post anything about either Harbor House Café (Sunset Beach, CA) or the Ponder Steakhouse (Ponder, TX)?  If so, I somehow missed them, though I don't know how.

We'll likely be in Staunton on the last day of our trip- we can probably get up early enough and spend part of the morning there but I suspect Sandra will want us to get to Lancaster PA around lunchtime in order to get  together  with her cousins.  It appears this will be a long day for us. Luckily Modern Pizza is open till 10PM on Sundays so having a later dinner should be ok. 
 
I didn't do any trip reports this year so you hadn't missed Harbor House Cafe or Ponder Steakhouse (actually you didn't miss Ponder at all- I was with you! ) but the Ponder Steakhouse and our meet up there will be mentioned in my end of the year report.

Re: Future trips into next year. 2018/06/20 08:17:04 (permalink)
Our trip begins  exactly 3 months from today and already there is some bad news...
 
First I'll start with the rumors:
Rumor has it that Sokolowski's in Cleveland may be closing for good as the family members are strongly considering retirement....if this should happen, then hopefully it will take place after our visit.
 
Rumor has it that once again,  Santa Fe Bite in Santa Fe NM may have to look for new digs ... again if this should happen, hopefully it will after our visit.

It seems that 2018 is the year for long standing restaurants to go out of business or catch on fire..
Sartins a legendary restaurant in the Beaumont/Port Arthur area of Texas since 1972 has closed their last roadhouse style restaurant (there used to be 3 or 4 locations) and recently still had 2 and have reopened in the food court section at the local shopping mall- so that's now out... Luckily I did research and found out that  Judice's Cajun Café will be reopening their second location in the old Sartin's building and they DO have bbq crab on the menu..
 
Chris Madrid's in San Antonio TX experienced a fire a few months back, initially they planned on reopening in late spring- they are working out of a food truck now with a makeshift enclosed area for seating and are now planning to reopen late summer- Well- our visit in early October will be well after late summer so I'm really hoping the grand reopening will be in full swing.
 
The biggest disappointment for us is the Millstone Tea Room in Bedford VA, shut it's doors earlier this spring.
A very popular established local standby since 2001, we were really looking forward to their fried chicken and spoon bread... Although the place was extremely popular and always busy, the owners (a husband and wife team) also had two other restaurants in town they were owning/operating and had to close the Millstone Tea Room because it was just too much on their plate- Sadly their other restaurants do not have fried chicken, or spoon bread on the menu so we will have to look elsewhere.
 
I checked my list and there does not appear to be any issues so far...but three months is a long time and anything can happen between now and then.

Restaurants have been updated....hopefully little will change over the next 3 months and if they do...it will be for the better.

I don't know how hungry you'll be or if you even like mushrooms, but their version sounds really good:
 
"We really sweat the details, roasting them in garlic butter and sherry before they are battered."

As you know we cannot even come close to competing with the heavyweights ... So that is unlikely- however that baked potato soup on the menu looks tempting- They way things work when we travel, by the end of that day we'll likely just split a BPT at Goldie's perhaps with a side of cheese curds to split.

Although we are hoping that Chris Madrid's in San Antonio will reopen their post fire renovated restaurant in time for our trip...if not... I think we found a more than adequate replacement.

Here is another potential snack stop for me in San Antonio that Sandra wants no part of..
Dave's Chili Town
 
 
How could I go through Texas and not stop for a bowl of red?

Even more amazing is Sandra was supposed to write a year end report....we don't see many year end reports and even less with no, no way, forget about it, don't stop, etc., etc., etc.!

Dale,
 
Are you familiar with the Polarsteps travel tracker App? It automatically tracks where you are and you can add pictures along the way. Your trip report will almost write itself. You can set it up to let others follow your trip. Your epic trip this Autumn will be a great chance to see how it works.

That sounds like a great idea- but unfortunately not for this trip. We agreed (it was actually my suggestion) there won't be any social media on this trip so we can concentrate on the trip- until it's over- I will post my food photos on instagram during our down time in the evenings and I'll post all the other attractions on facebook when we return from our trip.

You can use Polarsteps to create a commemorative book (at some great cost). I thought that might be of interest to you.

Now that might make for an interesting Christmas gift.

Dale,
 
I was thinking about Sandra (not you) when I suggested this.
 
If you want to keep it a secret you can run the app in the background and add your pictures & descriptions after you complete your trip.

All I can say is...
 
Mustard or Mayo ?
Heinz or Hellmann's ?
Pot Roast or Prime Rib ?
Oatmeal or Cream of Wheat ?
Pop tarts- toasted or not?
Popcorn- buttered or not?
