BEST OF EVERYTHING

WHAT MAKES KINGSLEY
INN'S SUNDAY BRUNCH
SO GREAT ANYWAY?

THE
MYSTERY
MUNCHER
writes ...
"Travelers want to sniff out
the best food American res-
taurants have to offer.
"As important to some as
sights and sounds of strange
cities is the thrill of dining
out in famous eating spots
were natives seldom venture
or in out-of-the way places
which serve palate-pleasing
dishes at more realistic
prices.
"America is a country
whose gastronomy ranges
from Maryland crabs to
Maine lobsters and oysters
Rockerfeller, from haute
cuisine to down-home cook-
ery, from Dagwood sand-
wiches to Japanese sushi and
Peking duck.
"The ethnic heritage of the
U.S.A. is a study in diversity
and the idea of classical
standards is an exercise in
frustration. "Travelers have a
choice of expensive deluxe
dining rooms, informal res-
taurants serving regional or
ethnic food, barbeque places,
hamburger chains, pizzerias
and delicatessens which may
constitute some of the most
interesting eating in town.
"Out-of-towners may want
to know where the natives go
for breakfast. It's not neces-
sary to go to New York, New
Orleans or San Francisco to
find first-rate dining rooms.
The nouvelle cuisine of
European-trained chefs turns
up in kitchens from Portland,
Oregon to Boston, Mass.
within months of being first
sighted in New York and Los
Angeles.
"American wines are taken
seriously as the country pro-
duces Chardonnays, caber-
nets, zinfandels and other
varieties which are a match
for the best from France,
Germany and Italy.
"Young American Chefs
through trial and error have
developed certain styles of
cooking that seem part of a
trend such as pan-blackening
of fish.
"Visitors want to know
about the atmosphere, style,
menu, special dishes and
prices of restaurants. They
may want to know that what
is called French nouvelle
cuisine may be referred to as
new American cuisine be-
