About

My friend, Jon Spivack, was a man that was never happier than when he had a menu in his hands. I came to share his obsession and now, after years of travelling and living all over the world, I recall some of the great and not-so-great-but memorable places in which I too held a menu in my hands.

For those that enjoy the unusual and out-of-the-way, the eccentric and the unexpected,  for the gustatory adventurer in you, this is a website to warm the heart, or should I say the stomach? You’ll find places from yesteryear, some still surviving and some long gone – places I ate in as a child or later as an adult.  Places filled with ghosts and some times great food. One could – like my son once did – plan an entire trip around an itinerary based on a select group of eating establishments featured here.

From time to time, I will also post recipes and images that are worth making and looking at. Hope you enjoy your stay. And – “yawl come back, hear?”

AND WHILE I’M AT IT – why not visit my other sites on the web?
