Restaurant Review: Edgewood Cafe (Yardley, PA)

If you ever find yourself hungry in the middle-of-nowhere town of Yardley, Pennsylvania, you could do much worse than a stop at the Edgewood Cafe. We were only in the area because we decided to spend the night after a day in New Hope. There is a Hampton Inn a couple of miles away, and…

2 days until St. Patrick’s Day… I’m not sure what specifically makes this Irish, but the concoction known as “Boxty” can be found on many pub menus. Potato pancakes topped with cheese and bacon, served up at the Shannon Rose.

4 days until St. Patrick’s Day… Let’s start off the countdown with this Irish Breakfast from Kildare’s Public House in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Though the service and a few other things were off that day, this food was spot on. It includes all the mainstays for such a meal: fried eggs, rashers, bangers, white and…

Restaurant Review: Whistling Willie’s (Cold Spring, NY)

An Oktoberfest dinner we had two weeks ago. There was chicken schnitzel, mushroom gravy, spaetzel, and German potato salad.

Restaurant Review: Outback Steakhouse (Middletown, NJ)

I rarely write about chain restaurants on this blog unless the experience is ultra positive (or negative). I had been sitting on a $100 gift card to Outback Steakhouse for the last six months and finally used it a couple of weeks ago. It must have been my first time there since I was a…

Our Anthony Bourdain Memorial BBQ

My co-workers-turned-good-friends from Brookdale are food lovers. Not just in the eating sense but with cooking, exploring, and trying new things. For the five years I’ve worked there, we have always talked about having a cookout. It was one of those really good ideas which just never came to fruition because of everyone’s schedules. However,…

Restaurant Review: Ripper’s Pub (Bethlehem, PA)

Bethlehem is loaded with many fine restaurants. That much is apparent. But as Justin and I walked around town (this being my first-ever visit), nothing spoke to us. We finally found one place that we wanted to try only to realize a few moments later that it was closed. It was a Monday after all….
