We are not “foodies”, but have come upon some pretty cool food establishments, either for their drop-dead great meals or distinctive character. Here are a few pictures of places to eat that captured our attention in our journeys. Bon appetit!

Best Buffalo Wings we have ever had… Duff’s, Buffalo area (NY)
Our all-time favorite fried fish joint – Woodman’s in Essex, MA
Pizzeria Bianco – Even though I am not a big pizza fan, this was just unbelievable, in Phoenix, AZ. We had the Biancoverde pizza (Mozzarella, Parmesan, Ricotta cheeses with Arugula sprinkled on top. Wow! I’m a fan. Karen found this place, as it had been rated in the NY Times as the best pizza place in America. No argument. (2/16)
Joe’s Farm Grill in Gilbert, AZ. This is a “must stop” for lunch – fresh everything – and delicious! (2/16)
