Well, I personally won't miss it but the thread is supposed to be for OLD restaurants that are LONG-GONE. We need everyone to go into a trance and go back to their childhood and dig deep, deeper..... deeeeeper..........WAKE-UP!!! Well what did you remember, where was it and what was your favourite food there?
