Burg Restaurant Review 1975

Burg Restaurant Review 1975 Crecco's : Probubly the best known spot in the Burg. Lou's pride is the fettuchini alfredo. most people remember the special salad, steak & chops very good. Top notch drinks. Trionfetti's: Would you believe the best roast pork and saurkraut outside of Pennsylvania Dutch Country? Campo's: Don't miss the snapper soup. And don't ruin it with too much of the very good sherry. Rossi's: The biggest and best Hamburger in town for less than a buck. Antipasto alfredo excelllent and the beef cacciatore (only on weekends) is outstanding. The Keg: All the pasta is great and the fettuchini alfredo is the best in the Burg. Peroni's: Some say its the best restaurant in the Burg. What to order? Just tell George to do it his way. Marsilios: Great for a family affair. Has more of the Italian restaurant atmosphere than any place in the Burg. Good food at reasonable prices. Roman Hall: Another good food al Italia. Inexpensive. Pasta a specialty. Hudson Garden: The mussels are tough to beat and the giant sandwiches (try steak pizziaola or sausage) a meal unto themselves. Choquettes: Not Italian. But their food business is growing as they expand. Its good and getting better. Clin-Mott: This place could be on docks of Baltimore or Boston. Good seafood in a dilapidated tap room. The Emory Cafe: New management. The jury is still out but it should be a good one. LaGondola: Nice atmosphere. Good food. Great Portions. Johnny Boston's: In a class by itself. Food excellent prices steep. Reservations manditory. Almost a private club.

Nailed those restaurants on the head, Mack they may be gone but the aroma lingers.

And Rossi's is still there!

At least it was last summer when I was down from upstate New York.

But I think all of the others are gone, aren't they, Mack?

Ahh ... the Chicken Catch at the Roman Hall ... where the wall murals (at least one) were done by one of the memorable Dads on my street, Gino Greatti, Jr.
