"O" is for Ordinary

The plainness of the Os is what really struck us. There were some great places and a few spotty spots, but most of the 14 restaurants will probably soon be forgotten. That's excepting the gorgeous desserts at Ocean Grill and fine dinners at Otto's and Old Feed Mill, which were nudged out of our favorites by the sheer appropriateness of what we did choose to call our number one dinner. Thank goodness we did go to Osteria Papavero for lunch or we'd have had a really tough choice.

Our favorite O's were:
Breakfast: Original Pancake House
Lunch: Osteria Papavero
Dinner: Old Fashioned

O is the 15th letter of the alphabet, meaning we only have 11 to go (including the still-empty X). As of August 2009, we're figuring we'll be done with the first pass For the first time, Nichole's "B" count looks like it's close to surpassing her "A" count. Well, "the race is long and in the end it is only with yourself" and other platitudes. Thanks for reading!

TO DO LIST:

-Open Iranian restaurant; name it "Xerxes" to give JM and Nichole something to cover for X.

I am surprised that the Old Feed Mill did NOT make the favorites list. I figured you would list two places, like you did for the letter "G".

Quick! Someone open a roller-skating bar/eatery and call it Xanadu.
