The Broken Egg – Breakfast is Back

39286333_2117687735224475_789234634738106368_nBreakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day. Okay, maybe diner too if it’s something like Cathryn’s Prime Rib or Lamb Chops. Honestly though, I could eat bacon and eggs every day. According to the Keto Diet that’s not a bad thing.

Nero’s Steak House

1491341927522What ever happened to all the good steak house restaurants? Windsor used to have at least a half dozen top notch places. Did the next generation stop eating steak or do they avoid upscale eateries? Even the Outback Steakhouse couldn’t survive in Windsor.

Not to worry folks. In case you haven’t heard, Nero’s Steak House in Casino Windsor is all things a good beef baron should be, and more. They specialize in prime cuts of meat, but also offer seafood and a full menu.

The People We Meet

IMG_0398When Cathryn and I travel it’s not all about the journey or the destination, or even the food and drink. Granted, those are all good reasons as to why we travel, but we also love to meet new people and share in their culture. People are one of the reasons you’ll see us perched on stools at the bar instead of sitting at a table by ourselves.

It’s not that we don’t enjoy each other’s company, we do, and we travel well together. Spending days or weeks together 24/7 can be trying for any couple or even close friends. Consider yourself lucky if you can get along with your travel partner.

Thirteen At The Inn

While I anticipated my visit to Thirteen At The Inn, I imagined the Chicken Liver Pate and Bean Salad from years ago.  They were my favorite memories of the food at Thirteen Russell Street, a popular Steak House situated in a historic Victorian house in downtown Leamington. It was a family-run restaurant, originally owned by the Harris’, but it closed its doors when the trend in fine dining waned.
Over the years, every time I drove by,  I thought about the beautiful old house and their delicious Caesar salads and juicy steaks.
To my delight, Karen Harris reopened Thirteen Russell by transporting her success and recipes through time, to the Seacliff Inn, another of Leamington’s historic Landmarks. The Inn and restaurant have undergone renovations that include a waterfront patio with a view of Lake Erie.

The Cook’s Shop Restaurant

frontCathryn and I hadn’t been to The Cook’s Shop in downtown Windsor for a few years. Our mistake. Our only disappointment of the night was that someone was sitting at our special reserved table when we arrived at 7:30 sharp. The waitress sat us at a table that was just as good, apologized when we asked, and explained that the other couple had been there since 4:45 and had just ordered their entrees.

El Patio De Sebastian

fruit

One of our favorite breakfast spots in Melaque is El Patio, on the same side of the street and just west of the Bus Depot and Roosters. You can actually walk right by the place if you’re not looking for the restaurant, there are three tables out front on the sidewalk that give it away. Our first time there we didn’t even know there was a beautiful courtyard patio inside, past the kitchen.
