I think that it really says something about our community that we collectively have been able to sustain a discussion about bacon for just over seventy-five replies.

Now exactly what it says about us is another matter entirely.

Here's one.

Or, if you're more in the mood for Japanese cuisine, there's always bacon tempura.

OF COURSE! Bacon makes everything better! The best is to make a spinich salad, and use a warm dressing with a TON of bacon in it!

But not all Bacon is bacon. That's the rub.

I thought it was the other way around, all bacon isn't Bacon with a Capital B.

I was referring to my quote earlier concerning Francis Bacon, and the cryptic immortality he has. No one took a bite of the Bacon I was offering. Dare I say:

"What's a matter, you Jewish" - Vincent Vega

Actually, he never quoted it, just made a reference to it, you followed nicely with the follow up to the line I posted above. But why nitpick over bacon? Especially when it goes so well on a european green salad with walnuts, red onion, bleu cheese, rasberry vinaigrette, and a Sonoma Cab?

Checked the link. [Jokingly]No offense, but 'Chico's All American Bistro' looks more like ikea's ideal all EU Bistro (with the blue and gold screen and all the veggies). I think we're going to have start a thread to identify real American roll-up-your-sleeves joints so you have a hit-list for when-ever you make it over to the States.

The sad thing is how many of these places I have eaten! Check out the new thread. I did not use the chrome, tricked out model as a rule for a diner, as some of the best, like Triangle, etc, look more like bars!

Here's a solid resource on Diners -- www.dinercity.com. There are other good Diner sites (like dinermusuem.org) but I like dinercity's commentary and state-by-state click-on map. Anyone here have any favorite diners -- or other diners that aren't on the list? I love them all -- from the '30's railroad car style to the sleek, big window affairs from the '50's.

Favorite: Wellsboro Diner, Wellsboro PA. (exceptionally well-preserved 1930's Diner in a town that the world has passed by).
Best Coffee (and bustle): Market Diner, 11th Avenue Manhattan New York. I don't drink coffee but the waitresses here don't always give you a choice. Arguably, this is the last true Manhattan Diner -- because of the patrons who are mainly throngs of drivers/cabbies from neighboring garages.
Best Breakfast: Zinn's Diner, North Reading PA
Best Pie: Dick's Diner, Murrysville PA (not pictured/listed)
Favorite Diner in a Movie: the diner near Poughkeepsie New York in 'Angel Heart'.
