Bruce Bilmes and Susan Boyle

Bruce Bilmes and Susan Boyle

Sue and Bruce met in college in the '70s. When they discovered Jane and Michael Stern's Roadfood late in that decade, they acquired a food passion to go with their passion for each other. Through the decades and pounds both passions are as strong as ever! They thrill to discovering, and writing about, out-of-the-way dining gems as much as they enjoy sampling the discoveries of others on Roadfood. Astrological signs: Sue is a Connecticut hot lobster roll and Bruce is a Pepe’s white clam pie.
