Ten Penny Restaurant Review

Bonjour from Jean-Marc Chatellier’s French Bakery

Excellence has a way of asserting itself. That is the case with Jean-Marc Chatellier’s French Bakery. Located at 213 North Avenue in Millvale, the eponymous bakery was established in 1992, by French native Jean-Marc Chatellier. Before the age of social media, most people discovered this out-of-the-world bakery by word-of-mouth, one customer touting the treats to friends or family. Gazing at the goodies in the glass

In years past, if you wanted local produce, you had to visit a nearby farm, but in the last decade or so the cropping up (pun intended) of Farmer’s Markets has continued to proliferate much to the delight of area consumers. A few markets open in May, while most open the beginning

Hasenpfeffer Review

Hasenpfeffer Review

Occasionally, I have consumed and, more often than not, enjoyed German food. From sandwiches with Bratwurst, Weisswurst or Knackwurst to Sauerbraten and an assortment of Schnitzels, I am not a stranger to German fare. But one famous German dish that I have been tempted to order but have shied away from is Hasenpfeffer. I like to be a little adventurous when dining out; I enjoy

North Park Lounge Restaurant Review

North Park Lounge Restaurant Review

It was early on a Thursday evening in December when I looked in the refrigerator and realized that I had two choices: start defrosting something and have a late dinner or jump in the car and go to a restaurant. We headed for the car. After naming a dozen places, we agreed on the North Park Lounge, located at 8701 Babcock Boulevard, McCandless Township. There
