Memories and info on the Sunshine
Memories of a favorite place;
The Sun Valley Motel & Restaurant, Wyoming,
Pizza - If you can't come to my mother's
for home-made, here's a few options:
Ice Cream - If you can't make it
homemade, here are some places I recommend:
Kitchen, Main Rd. Bridgehampton, NY (get the "Fresh Banana"
/ Northampton, MA (Oreo is really good)
- Ashley's / New
Haven, CT (have them put in some "mix-ins")
- Hoyer's / Haverstraw,
NY (soft-serv coffee dipped in fudge)
- Hallmark / Old
Lyme, CT ("Apple Pie" and "Ginger" make up a long
list of great flavors)
- Grays Ice Cream / Tiverton Four Corners, RI (Ginger as well)
For a regional brand, Brigham's in Boston
is excellent. Simple ingredients keep the ice cream refreshing. Store-bought
wise, I prefer Breyer's for the same reason.
- Bay and Surf
/ Laurel, MD - start with the bisque. Burned down in 2007 / still closed.
- Young's Lobster
Shack / Belfast, ME - a little pricey, but the view is special.
- The Cull House
/ Sayville, NY - known for "special surprise" offerings.
- City Crab /
NYC - reasonable, fresh, and good quality.
- Pompano's /
Panama City, FL - order the blackened Mahi Mahi and a table by the window
- Monster Sushi (Midtown & Chelsea, NYC) huge pieces, good quality & reasonable $$.
Beef - Hey - it's what's for dinner
Rendezvous / Riverhead, NY - marinated porterhouse. I've never had it
- Harris' Restaurant
/ San Francisco, CA - slogan "Dine With Beef"
- Ruth's Chris
/ chain - always superb.
- Peter Luger's
/ Brooklyn, NY - exceptional and you don't need to wear a tie.
- Louie's Lunch
/ New Haven, CT - this is where the hamburger was invented. Seriously.
- Hamburger Hamlet
/ Washington, DC (Georgetown) - topped with spinach & mozzarella
- Milos / Birmingham,
AL - it's all in that tastey sauce. 99 cents gets you more sauce for
- The Good Burger / 1st & 45th NYC - Fresh, tasty and homemade milkshakes
- Big Nick's / West Side NYC - salivation begins immediately upon entering.
- Fiesta Cancun / Stony Point, NY - superb food, friendly staff and Kyle's
fav for dessert.
- Good Steer / Lake Grove NY - order extra onion rings.
More odds and ends yet to come.
