The restaurant that was not there (twice)
October 29, 2016 11:08am CST
Like Charlie Brown trying to kick the football that Lucy pulls away, we tried it twice.We are both fans of Greek food, so when I ran across a review of a family run Greek restaurant in town, I suggested that we try it. That was a couple of months back. But wait, their website said they were relocating and were at a different address. So we decided to go there for lunch. The relocation had not happened, was in progress and the old location was closed for that reason. Just yesterday, since it was the one sunny, sort of warm day, we decided again to have lunch out and then stop by a rural winery with a great view. Anne suggested the Greek place again. I assumed that she had verified its existence and it was the direction we needed to go anyway. Well, of course nothing had changed. There was no sign, no restaurant and not a Greek in site to provide an explanation. There was, fortunately, a locally owned pancake restaurant that serves lunch nearby, so we went there. I indulged in an old fashioned roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy, the first time I have had one in over twenty years. I did ask for whole wheat bread though. We went on to enjoy a glass wine and the great view at Sarver Winery.

In't that irritating? Speaking of roast beef sandwich, I was coming home from California and crossed over into Nevada and saw a little family ran restaurant . I stopped and when in to order my favorite–hot turkey sandwich. They didn't have that so I order the hot beef sandwich. The waitress came out with a serving size platter heaped with big chunks of roasted beef, mashed potatoes and vegetables (I always order a side of vegetables). I ate it all. Then the waitress asked, "Do you want dessert?" "Dessert?" I asked. "I can hardly walk after eating all that."

It is always a great let-down when you're looking forward to a meal at a particular restaurant and it is shut or whatever. A roast beef sandwich sounds nice. We are having a roast tonight. It is one of my favourite meals, as long as there is plenty of gravy. :)
