You've often heard someone say of their favorite hometown restaurant, "It's the best-kept secret in so and so", and often it is. But Clarksville Seafood, at 916 Eastern Boulevard in Clarksville, Indiana, is the only place I know where the secret is kept, almost guarded, by the operator himself. Current owner Steve Knear has often said, "We have all the business we can handle", and from eyeballing peak periods in the dining room, I believe him.
Now With Tomato
Anyone who knows me and my lovely better half, Stacey, knows that we love good food. Even after my weight loss and better diet, I still love food, whether it be fine dining, drive-in or dive. The culinary portion of our travels or right here at home is documented in Now With Tomato. If you're looking for a place to eat or just dream and drool, this is it!
If there's one thing people know about me, it's that I love a good burger, and a big burger. To get both, you need look no further than Hugh Jass Burgers at 395 South Limestone in Lexington.
While Jim was busy preparing for Ring Of Honor's 1st Sinclair TV taping, I had a chance to go exploring the Windy City myself. Hot Doug's was my mission and believe me when I say it was so worth it!
In my new position with Ring of Honor, I have made somewhat of aFaustian bargain--four times a year, I get to see and be a part of the greatest live professional wrestlingevent presented in the United States today, the quarterly ROH extravaganzas at the Manhattan Center in New York City. With the part of Mephistopheles being played by Cary Silkin, I am the learned Dr. Faustus of German legend who has opted for the chance to participate in these spectaculars, but in return must make the pilgrimage to the one place in the country that sends all of my various phobias and fears into overdrive--the Big Apple.
On our cross-country trip last March for the Ring of Honor events in Phoenix, we ate at many restaurants, both fine dining and dive, but without doubt the Holy Grail of Burger Joints, the Heart Attack Grill, was my favorite pigout.
This time on Tomato, Stacey checks in with a review of the Cornette's evening at Annabel Lee's Tavern in Baltimore MD.
This edition of Now With Tomato focuses on one of my all-time favorite restaurants, Sabatino's in Baltimore.
Last time, Now With Tomato focused on JC's search for the biggest cheeseburger in Louisville. THIS time, Stacey searches HER hometown for authentic Dim Sum.
After giving Stacey her choice of reviews last month, JC's number is up on this edition of Tomato, and he chooses the holy shrine of the Buffalo Wing. Quaker Steak & Lube.
The City of Brotherly Love, the birthplace of Independence,Philadelphia, has a wide variety of restaurants from world class cuisine to casual dining, cheesesteaks to Filet Mignon. But on our recent trip to Philly for the Ring of Honor TV tapings, Stacey and I were in a quandary about where to eat.
