**One of the top 2-3 meals I’ve ever had in this city I had on Saturday night at Noble Fare.   New York Striptease it’s called.  Steak, potato, haricot vert, carrot puree and Dutch Island mushrooms.  Yes, that Dutch Island. Simply amazing.

**Speaking of Noble, they are having a wine dinner Sunday night.  Amizetta Winery.  Trust me, Jennifer knows her wine.  Not just anyone is going to get time in their place if it is not quality.  Call them for more  information at (912) 443-3210.
