New restaurants are popping up all over town joining long established ones. Rather than a review, each post will serve as a guide for the epicure in all of us. Every other week we will spotlight one of Elm City’s dining establishments, whether fancy-schmancy or hole-in-the-wall, a longtime favorite or the new kid on the block. Occasionally we will venture outside the city limits when the lure of a tasty suburban spot becomes too great. There will be photos, highlights of the restaurant, and a quick interview with the chef or owner.
