Well, the first time I visited there under the current ownership, the owner was pretty pointed about how she runs the place because she likes doing it, and was there for the locals, and didn’t want to deal with a lot of tourists, since she thought if it got any busier, the food quality would suffer.
I’ve got a review of the place, although it’s now pretty dated (it’s from 2006):
Wasp’s is still open, but not on Saturdays (or Mondays, I believe). And they pretty much never answer the phone.
I like going there, since most times I’ve ordered a benedict, the cook has made the sauce to order.
Alas, their schedule means that I can only go there on days off of work…
Ceci, just wanted to update this thread by saying that we still missed Wasp’s Snack Bar last weekend. I called during the week about 12:30pm but no one answered the phone. The sign still says they close at 2pm, but on what days? A window on the opposite side of the diner was left open, so I assume they’re still in business…rats! Chris
Guess I better not tell you about the time we (wife, daughter, me) flew the 3200 miles to SFO and then went up to Marin Cty to see friends and I FORCED everyone to go out for fired clams that night in some little Marin Cty town, only to be told they were out! LOL.after my plea of 3200 miles, they came up with some!
As a "FriedClamFanatic", I reckon you might belong here (or there, as I am currently on vacation in CA…). [:)] And a belated WELCOME to Roadfood, btw.
I haven’t had the pork pie though that’s supposed to be the thing to eat at Red Arrow, however I can say I have loved everything I have had there. Enjoy!!!!
The major reason for the "bump" was because I"m about to make a trek up to VT to visit family and figured I’d wow them with MY recommendations as to where we should go to eat!
So, like a good newbie, I did various searches on here…I-89, I-84, Vt restaurants, I-95, CT, Manchester NH, etc. etc. Spent abnout a half a day looking over all these great posts, never got around to getting the lawn mowed, got yelled at by the better half for that. (But did manage to have a wonderful dinner ready for her).
Seriously, having only recently found this board, I am totally impressed (I think, now that I’m heading to New England, that is "wicked" impressed)with the amount of knowledge here and the lengths some of you go to help folks out with great places, great ideas, and great pictures. Kudos and thanks to all of you. I hope is some meagre way to be able to contribute some gems I might find on the trip.
BUT………not another write-up on Red Arrow. You folks have said it all and it’s a definite "Yes" on this trip. To think I used to go to a ski shop that was only a cple of blocks from there for over 8 years and never tried it……….SHEESH! It has to be the penultimate (great word – thanks, Mom&Dad for all that $$$ you spent on my education) Roadfood place. I might just have to move back to New England.
Looking at this again confirms what I already knew…..you are one of our very best photographers!
I’m glad it was as I missed it on its maiden voyage…nice job! Really enjoyed this thread!
Well, y’all are most welcome… I sure was surprised to see this thread "bumped"!
LOL.I did NOT make Apple Cider, but a nice cold G&T is in order!
And again, thanks for the posts on VT
Yep…made some Hot apple cidar and sipped as I viewed the pictures!!
Thanks for bumping this thread. It is going to be 100 degrees today and some snowy pictures is just what I needed.
Oh Longwood Gardens…we go often…we have the family season pass…and I agree the cafeteria side of the restaurant is the way to go!!!
We have a Simon Pearce down here in PA (near Chadds Ford……Longwood Gardens, Winterhur, etc). Food is good, pricey, and the view is wonderful. But for lunch I’d do the Longwood Gardens Restaurant. The "Cafeteria" side is better than the sit-down in my opinion.
But SP is great fun for dinner or late lunch when they are blowing glass (which they normally do).
I’ll be in the Queechee VT area in August; plan to try some areas near Chelsea and Tunbridge. Went over to Norwich last year and had a nice meal at the Norwich Inn. Also, Bakers Catalogue has its headquarters and store there which is a real treat.
Thanks Beth, Dale, Ken & Donald [:)]
Yes, Beth! I have plenty of spots on my list – I bet you do too!
Ken – VT is an awesome place to visit at all times of the year – hope you get there again soon!
Dale – I’d really like to hear what you think of Simon Pearce and think their website presents it the way they are, pretty upscale and a bit of attitude (though very very good food & gorgeous glass!!!). Check it out: http://www.simonpearceglass.com/ or http://www.simonpearceglass.com/CSTM_Restaurants.aspx
Donald – LOL, I walked my "horses" (if an auto’s horsepower counts…). For another goody, see below.
