I'm impress RT with your research.. yep toutons for breakfast, jigg's dinner with some Moose soup and oh ya raw carrots for the up-alongs ( called the Henvironmentalist down our way ) should cover the basis
hahaha. But yes, you are correct on all accounts. Great advice. Like John said, know the market. My plan RT was already based on some of the things you actually identified. Since we love the social aspect of meeting, visiting and showing those that are interested a good time ( boat tours included ) we want to do this venture not as a must to survive but as a mom and pop down-home business. Seasonal will work just great for us.
Peggy and I have done a lot of traveling and yep Chip I can remember where the food was just awesome as well as places that the food needed a lot to be desire. One can have the swankest diner and have no patrons while the hole in the wall got line-ups.
Great Food, Great People, Great Times..
