The Wednesday Night Dining Crew
We have been dining together every week for over twenty years.
We could tell you stories.
“We should look for someone to eat and drink with,
before looking for something to eat and drink,
for dining alone is leading the life of the lion, or the wolf.”
North Country Rambler is a personal blog about our favorite dining destinations in “upstate” New York. Posts are not intended to be “critiques” or “reviews” in the classic sense. We do not criticize any establishments (at least not intentionally). If we do not like a venue, you will not read about it here; we only write about the restaurants that we enjoy. Our focus is on bistros, usually ethnic. We prefer a crock of cassoulet and a bottle of Beaujolais to just about anything else. We do not accept any advertising on the blog, we pay for all of our own meals, and we do not accept any remuneration from any establishments mentioned in the blog unless we can drink said remuneration before we leave.
