Gilbert Von Deen
Where is everyone? Is it just me or is there an increasing lack of
interest in the finer eating establishments of our great land? It seems that every time I
venture about to all those hidden little eateries, those out of the way places you hear
folks talking about, no one is there. Now I know that a good amount of gold went into
building these fine establishments, but I cannot imagine how they stay open. Oh, when
these posh restaurants and taverns were new you could not get a reservation for a table.
Yet once the hype died down it seems the customers have died down as well. I challenge you
good readers, get out in the world and see these fine spots! I know you will not be
disappointed in the fine fare and finer service.Leave the comfort of the guarded cities
and venture to an eatery with a little more style and something spicier on the menu. I
guarantee you will not be sorry if you do!
