Since the last time I attended any kind of fair, they really have upgraded the traditional funnel cake. The regular version is delicious as-is, but we opted for the Bananas Foster version at the Wilson County Fair this year. It was amazing, complete with caramelized sugar from a blowtorch.
Add Capitol Grille to the window-less restaurant list. I love the place, but I always feel like I'm descending into the depths when I eat there.
I hit up Humdingers last weekend, since it was one of the few places I could eat on my current diet. They gladly switched out the rice for another side, and the grilled sweet potatoes were huge and delicious. My rainbow trout was quite good, and my husband loved his amberjack. I couldn't try the piri-piri sauce, Ulika, because it had sugar in it unfortunately.
As a mezzo, I've always been keen on baritones myself. Shame that I have other plans that night.
I agree with you on the Manhattan, but I do love a well-made (gin) martini.
On the theme of institutional food, I was fascinated by the hospital food on my recent trip to Kenya. The patients were eating REAL food. I often saw a patient peeling an orange or banana, and lunch was usually a traditional Kenyan offering - lentil stews with chunks of beef or goat, rice, cabbage and carrots, etc. So different from syrup-coated canned fruit and "mystery meat" that I see at hospitals in the US.
School lunch-wise, I went to a private school, but food was still a mixed bag. I ate a lot of chicken patty sandwiches and square pizza and corn dogs. With two working parents, when I packed my own lunch, it wasn't much better - Lunchables or something similar. *shudder*
Last year, I made this butternut squash, kale, and cheddar bread pudding for Thanksgiving as a vegetarian "entree":http://www.cook-pray-love.com/2011/12/butt… It was SO good and even better leftover.
