At the end of a long day, there is nothing like sitting down with a big plate of hot food surrounded by friends and family. Food speaks to your soul. While the trendy, gourmet restaurants have their place; there is something to be said for homestyle cooking, homestyle serving and a good old homey vibe. Whether its biscuits and gravy, pot roast, a big plate of pasta or a giant piece of pie, everyone has a dish that can magically melt all your cares away after just one bite.
Comfort food, although not always healthful for the body, is always healthful for the soul. At Old 41 the owners aim to serve foods that remind you of home, no matter where that is, geographically speaking. And they make no excuses for the extra cream, butter and cheese that makes some dishes oh sooooo good.
The national restaurant Buca de Beppo is great for big parties and celebrations. The food is served in the traditional family-style. Big bowls and platters are put in the middle of the table so everyone can dig-in. Don't skip dessert! The place is full of laughter and fun memorabilia.
