Open for business

* The last two Saturday evenings, we were stunned to see that the parking lot was empty at the popular Ross Issac restaurant. After the second time, I turned the truck around and pulled up to the building. A posted sign said they were working on some equipment problems, but didn’t indicate a target reopening date.
Ross Isaac is an incredibly popular restaurant for Statehouse types, even if it is outside “the sandbox.” I like the place a lot and it has won at least one Golden Horseshoe.
* This morning, I received an e-mail from Sean Keeley, the chef/owner of the restaurant…
That’s a relief. And, finally, a decent brunch in Springfield. Great news all around.
And there’s no need to “have me in,” Sean. I’ll go on my own accord, and very soon. Maybe tonight. I’m pretty curious about the new menu.
* By the way, now that we’re on the topic of Springfield restaurants, I forgot to post the winner of our Golden Horseshoe Award for Best Political Restaurant in Springfield after voting ended. The winner was Sebastian’s, with Maldaner’s taking runner-up.
