This is a blog post that I will be updating periodically for as long as I write on this blog. It is a graveyard for great restaurants that have gone to that great take-out joint in the sky. In all seriousness, these business's failure led to great anguish to a family. This post celebrates and remembers the great food that they served.
Cafe Istanbul-This was the first place that I had Turkish food, which is awesome! It was also the only restaurant at the Greene that I could eat at and, due to its uniqueness, not feel like I was betraying the locally owned restaurants.
Mi Tierra-This was a restaurant in East Dayton. I could never guess what was going to close it down first, the health department or INS. I mean that as a compliment. It had the most authentic Mexican food in Dayton.
Linden Grill-was a nice little diner that was within walking distance from my house. It had good food and good service but it was just so cool to have a diner within walking distance of my house. That's why urban life is better than suburbia.
Terra Cotta Cafe-http://divingthroughdayton.blogspot.com/2009/02/terra-cotta-cafe.html They moved out and left a whole in downtown's restaurant choices.
Philly Steak House- http://divingthroughdayton.blogspot.com/2009/04/best-cheesesteak-and-gyro-in-dayton-are.html. They had the best cheese steaks and gyros in town. I've found gyros that are comparable but I have not had a cheese steak that was in the same ball park.
Tony's- http://divingthroughdayton.blogspot.com/2009/03/tonys.html They were really good!
Wympee's-http://divingthroughdayton.blogspot.com/2009/05/wympees-breakfast-edition.html are they missed?
Bosco's - I never did a post about them but they were one of my favorites. That restaurant should NOT have gone down. It will definitely be missed and I just hope that their sweet potato fry and chipotle sauce recipes will show up somewhere else.
If you want to remember a favorite Dayton restaurant, mention it in the comments.
