Where to Eat in Bloomington

March 1st, 2009 No comments

I like English pubs. Here is an HT article on Bloomington saloons that welcome children. I don’t know if they allow dogs or not.

Rago said Nick’s was cognizant of retaining its reputation as a bar,
which is why it confines its under-21 business to daytime and early
evening hours. ...
The Crazy Horse, 214 W. Kirkwood Ave.: Under 21 patrons welcome but
cannot remain after 9 p.m.
Grazie Italian Eatery, 106 W. Sixth St.: Seating in the restaurant
proper is open, and minors can be in the bar lounge, if not the bar
itself, if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
The Irish Lion, 212 W. Kirkwood Ave.: Families can congregate
upstairs. Downstairs, under-21 patrons have to be at least 18, in the
company of parents and must sit either in the loft or well areas of
the room. The Irish Lion also has a “babes in arms” policy. Infants
can be downstairs, provided they’re being held.
Malibu Grill, 106 N. Walnut St.: Families can sit in the restaurant
and, in the separate bar area, patrons at least 18 years old can enter
with a parent or legal guardian, but can’t sit at the bar.
Scotty’s Brewhouse, 302 N. Walnut St.: Families can sit throughout the
main restaurant area, but not in the bar area proper, which is blocked
off by a half-wall.
Trojan Horse, 100 E. Kirkwood Ave.: Under-21 patrons can sit
downstairs and also in four booths upstairs.
The Uptown Cafe, 102 E. Kirkwood Ave.: Families can sit throughout the
restaurant, and 16- to-20-year-olds can also enter the bar area
accompanied by parent or legal guardian, but cannot sit at the bar
Yogi’s Grill & Bar, 519 E. 10th St.: Yogi’s advertises all-ages
service until 10 p.m.

Chicago Restaurants

From Randy Barnett at VC:

Every year I like to celebrate my birthday in my home town of Chicago where I can eat my favorite comfort food: Teibels Family Restaurant for lake perch (boned and buttered), Carson’s, The Place for Ribs for baby back ribs, and Walker Brothers, The Original Pancake House for apple pancakes.

Mr.Herb’s Restauran, Hebron, Kentucky

January 1st, 2009 No comments

Mr.Herb’s Restaurant in Hebron Kentucky, near Cincinnati, is very very good. It is a seafood restaurant. I had Mr. Herb’s Famous Fish Platter. A review says,

I’ve never had a bad meal at Mr. Herb’s; over the past few years I pretty much order the same thing: Mr. Herb’s Famous Fish Platter. Two huge pieces of battered and fried North Atlantic cod are served with two side items and your choice of hush puppies or dinner roll. Don’t forget the (extra) tartar sauce.

For me, the must-try side items are the green beans and the stewed tomatoes. I could make a meal just of these down-home classics. During the summer if you see the smoker parked outside, you’ll want to order the pulled pork BBQ. Mmmm. Delicious.
