Roadfood - 2017

So how am I supposed to get any work done today while I have the 10th edition, 2017 version of Roadfood in my hands?

BB, How are you doing with finishing off the first edition?  I know you said you were down to a handful of restaurants.

The first Jane & Michael Stern book I came across was the 1997 Eat Your Way Across the USA.  My goal was to visit all the places in the 1999 revised edition.  I am down to six remaining.

The UPS driver handed me my copy about a hour ago.  A quick glance through it shows me that it is really done well.  I love all the telephone numbers!  It looks like I am going to have a great afternoon of reading pleasure.
 
By the way Buffetbuster, which 6 do you have left.  I loved that book and we went to many of the restaurants, but nothing compared to you.

By the way Buffetbuster, which 6 do you have left. 

Of the six, four of them are in New York:


Duryea's in Montauk
Lobster Roll in Amagansett
Tom's Restaurant in Brooklyn
Totonno's in Brooklyn
 
Also:
 
Nunan's Lobster Hut in Kennebunkport, ME.  I have driven past many times, but it always seems to be the wrong time of the year, as they are only open during the Summer. 
 
Cimmiyotti's in Pendleton, OR.  The one time I was in Pendleton, Cimmiyotti's was already out of business.  They have since reopened under new management, but I still count it.

Waiting on mine. Target says it's arriving on Saturday, the gift copy I sent to a friend from Amazon will arrive next Monday or Tuesday.
 
Very excited!

Too bad we no longer live on Long Island, you could have stayed by us. Lobster Roll in Amagansett has a north shore outpost in Baiting Hollow. http://lobsterrollnorthside.com/

It is so rare that I ever get to claim that I have been to a Roadfood establishment that you are still missing, in part because of all the travel that we have completed together. But, Totonno's is a favorite of mine and Tony Bad's, too. 
 
It was also a place where we ran into Mario Batali on our Pizza Tour of NYC - almost ten years ago. Seems hard to believe that it is on your missing list.

We have been to Nunan's Lobster Hut many times.  I love that place.  We love even more now that they serve adult beverages.

Amazon wins the booby prize on this one. I am getting skunked by the "preparing for shipping" status. The book I'm sending as a gift has been "preparing for shipping" for the last three days. This is not super saver shipping either, I paid the full amount when I preordered Feb, 20th. 
 
My own copy is coming from Target, will be here Saturday. I'll be ordering stuff from Target from now on.

That's nuts - mine's expected to reach CT by Tuesday but it's still "being prepared". 
 
Maybe because I'm not a Prime member?
 
Oh well. I've had good experiences with Walmart and Target online. Amazon used to be great! Don't know what's up with all that. 
 
However I am really excited to get the book and take some road trips!

Amazon Prime, ordered Sunday, received Tuesday.  
 
If you're looking for Roadfood Adventure, Rhode Island is the epicenter.  With wanderingjew heading to SoCal, his place is available for any and all Roadfooders.  Enjoy unlimited stuffies and sleep with HIS pillow!

Looking forward to getting the new Road Food book.  I've been getting them since about the mid-80s.  Great choice of including Mama's in Bala Cynwyd, PA on the book cover.  It is posssibly the best cheesesteak in the Philly region.

Ordered 3 copies on March 7th, still "preparing for shipment" as of March 14th. Plus I'm 30, 35 miles away from their giant distribution location.
