She tells me fairly often, “I’m sorry I don’t know what went wrong.” This apology also comes unprovoked.

CromWELL has been integrated into my life. I was shouting his name to other commuters on the way to work.

well, then definitely try Eddie Gaedel’s in Elburn. They have housemade baked beans that’ll blow your mind and german potato salad. Dare I say, better than my German mother’s. Oh, and Friday fish fry is a game changer. No straws. http://www.eddiegaedelpubandgrill.com/

We ultimately chose Craft Urban. Well, Sara chose Craft Urban because she had never been. I had their Nice Salad and Charred Cauliflower, both were superb. Sara had the Short Rib Burger and she whispered unprovoked, “this might be the best local burger I’ve had.”

I appreciate all of your suggestions, too! We’ll definitely visit the non-winners since we go out for dinner. A LOT. Yep, I’ve made note of the ones we’ve never been to. I’m interested in visiting the Elburn restaurants as we’ve never ventured farther west than Randall that I can remember.

Note to restaurateurs: having an easy to find, up-to-date menu on your website along with your phone number and address is mission critical in the here and now.

Also, having at least one vegetarian option on Le Menu is helpful. I’m not saying it’s required but it can be deciding factor in where we eat.

Sara makes no bones about eating good meat and I’ll happily accompany her wherever she goes unless… I’m stuck drinking cucumber water through a paper straw like a moron.

Fish sammies are probably the easiest. Baked beans in a hotdog bun with a side of coleslaw will work.

PS- I’m still wondering about Craft Urban’s white brick building, too… 🤔

Yep, that’s the correct pronunciation of Cromwell 💖

Considering the number of times I’ve heard Siri and Alexa react to things that weren’t directed at them, this seems problematic.

Oops - just checked website. They close at 4 PM. Also, the name is Lumes Pancake House and it is in Batavia, not Geneva. Other than that, I was sort of correct! 😊😊😊

Yes. A hose, please. For water. If it’s not too much trouble.

Don’t think burgers qualify as “comfort” food for most people….🤭

If you’re looking for decent diner fate for dinner, the only place to get it after 2:30 or 3 PM is Lum’s in Geneva.

Neither is open for dinner.
