Messing with (near) perfection

I'm sure there are some people who always order something new when they go to a restaurant that they've been to before.

I'm not one of those people.

By the time I've been to a restaurant a few times I have favorites. I tend to order from among a few things. Sometimes I'll force myself to try something new, but not too often. So when a favorite disappears from a menu, it's rather traumatic.

It happened at Mad Anthony's when they redid their menu. They took away my Seafood Unwrap. Fortunately, many vocal customers let them know they missed it, and it returned to the menu.

I've written before about our family trips to Buca di Beppo for special birthdays. We love their food. Eating family style is great fun. But we all always look forward to the end of the meal, because they had absolutely fantastic cannoli. The best ever. HAD. They've gotten rid of the cannoli. So I'm telling everyone I know, "If you like Buca, call and ask them to bring back the cannoli."

Oh man, I can't tell what I miss more, Buca's or California Pizza Kitchen.

Max and Erma's Tortilla Soup. It was my first meal after I completed my first marathon.
