Niagara Gazette — Sitting around a table, family style, has other benefits. I met new friends, including Janis and Dave Miller of Grand Island, a lovely couple who shared friends in common with my husband, Doug, and the Christina Maroulis, an Island native and manager of Remington’s Tavern and Seafood Exchange in North Tonawanda. “I think it’s great that Dick and Jenny’s is introducing hospitality and food pairings of that sort in the suburbs, and to my hometown,” Christina told me later.
As for me, I won’t be reporting on the next dinner. Much like reviewing a concert or movie, it detracts from my being really present to enjoy the experience. But, I would advise readers to take Ryan’s advice and try something new in the new year, as there are so many wonderful foods and wines out there to explore.
Jenny’s already taking reservations for the “Spain 101” set for February, shortly after Ryan returns from Spain. For more details visit the website, www.dickandjennysny.com or phone 775-5047.
