After I posted that, I was thinking one of those small chains, if not the Peppermill, had been at the River Road place. But I can't remember what. I wasn't living in town then.
Thought it was the Peppermill, but if not some sort of chain that was similiar.

Hey anyone else have any idea about this? How about you GPD guys?

Had the Wild Leek Risotto at Greenwich Tavern it was terrific, so why didn't you let anyone know that you were in town. KAL is going to be disappointed!
Another pit stop he makes in Greenwich and says nothing! We're due for the usual suspects gathering soon I would think. October sound good?

Yes - Angie's (Colonial Inn)- now the Beach House Cafe.(Picked up a nice loaf of sourdough bread next door at Beyond Bread. Better than we have around here.)
Too bad the Viscardi boys couldn't keep the Colonial Inn going after Angie died.

(She had only one peer - Frau Lehmann at Maxl's in North White Plains. Miss that place too.)

Angie's sons opened a small place on Hope Street in Glenbrook - the old Elks location, but the charm and character didn't move with them.

Agreed and the Hope St restaurant has gone down, in my estimation in the last year.

That place is really good. Also hit Athen's for a gyro the day before and Fonda La Paloma for dinner - all excellent as usual.

We were on our way home from NH and Maine - only stayed one night. All time taken up with family stuff. I haven't had time to look any old friends for years.

Will have to come up by myself for a more social visit - the wife is already back at work (from home). She loses vacation days every year.

I'll leave the wife here. She'd probably be bored anyway - no Greenwich connection besides me!

I wasn't going to stop but Mom figured out we were going right be exit 5! Plus I owed her a birthday dinner out.

My mom and stepdad loved Angie's. They went all the time. It's hard to believe it's the same place now.

Well, they neutered the place by sanding and painting over all the initials, etc., in the woodwork.
Just like "cleaning" the patina off an antique - wrong move! And the food there is just so "trendy" I could choke!
Thank God Mario's in Saugatuck is still the same, even though the founder just passed away.

All good choices. Try Jean-Louis next time, it is not that expensive and the food is great!

No, but a jacket at dinner would be preferred. They even have a prix-fixe menu.

I also enjoy Polpo, the food is wonderful and they have a piano player every night.

I remember the Humpty Dumpty. It never had any sign at all and there is a story there. You sat on chunks of log, the portions of desert were tiny but great and the menu wasn't kidding when it said "just a sliver" of brownie was what you got.

As long as we are on this stroll down memory lane can anyone tell me how they did what went on overhead during the feature film at the Pickwick? I've always wondered. How many people did that old barn hold?

There's a couple of things for you youngsters to ponder.

My guess is that you mean all the stars on the ceiling...I always thought they were painted....I was quite young at the time but it seemed the place could hold "Thousands"!

Would like to try that place. Also have never been to Henkelmann's (sp?) or Le Cremiere (sp?)- both pricey I know.

My family usually skips the Beach House in favor of Tracks (Mackenzies).

I like Mackenzie's 23oz Black Angus. Their other steaks I find lower in quality, poorly trimmed, and overpriced. Portions in general are skimpy for the price.

The stars were little lights,I always wondered how they changed them. The real mystery to us kids was how they managed to have clouds drift across the ceiling, fog machine? another projector? We never figured it out maybe the octogenarian knows.

They used to hold charity jazz concerts there. I remember one where Bud Collier (radio's Superman and TV's Beat the clock) was the MC. I think Bert Parks may have done one too. Good times.
