I agree! There was one within walking distance when I was in college in Atlanta. My big splurge then was going to Morrisons and having shrimp. Good stuff!

When I think of the places I have visited that are old and famous or leave a true feeling of life in the days gone by, I forget about the Old original Bookbinders. We were only there once but of how we loved it. Also remember eating in the Rainbow room in NYC; that was a great experience.

We ate at the Commander's Palace when Paul Prudhomme was still there, also Musso & Frank's, the Tadich, and Katz' Deli. I'm sure there are more.

1848? Wow, I'm amazed it stayed operational within the same family for that many years! Hopefully the new owner keeps things the same, and doesn't mess with what has kept that restaurant successful.



Are you talking about Binion's in Las Vegas, which used to be called Binion's Horseshoe Casino? Ugh I walked inside there twice on my past Las Vegas trip(once because it was so damn cold, and I was taking some nighttime pics of the neon signage outside those casinos on my February 2019 Las Vegas trip), and sadly to say that casino was a DUMP inside. It's also a really bad sign if you enter from the back entrance(kitty corner away from California Casino), that you see all these out of order slot machines freely stored in that area closely next to each other. I'm sure once upon a time Binion's used to be much nicer(in the Binion's Horseshoe days), but it no longer is now sadly. Also it's a bad sign if the hotel tower is abandoned, and after I came back from Las Vegas, I saw a walkthrough video of someone sneaking up to one of the abandoned hotel floors! That hotel tower was originally part of The Mint btw, before Binion's Horseshoe expanded into where The Mint once was around 1988. Anyway, enjoy this vid if you're curious:

Raised in So Cal Vegas is almost or was our second home. We took several trips a year to sin city, both as a child and then as a married couple with kids. yes, Biono's had a great steak house and the Mint had a great restaurant but like so much of downtown Vegas what is still there from the days gone by is not worth visiting except for old time sake.

Binion's Gambling Hall

Another good steakhouse in Vegas is "The Steakhouse" in the Circus Circus casino which is also a DUMP but the restaurant is very good. It seems you can't judge a book by its cover, at least not for restaurants.
One of our favorite Vegas places to eat used to be the Circus, Circus steak house for Sunday brunch but never liked the casino itself

The Griswold Inn in Essex Ct. Been there since 1776. I used to love it but I don't think it's as good as it used to be. At one time I used to go there just for their shepherd's pie which they still made with lamb. The next time I went, it was only made with ground beef and was a disappointment. Didn't go back for years but went back a few months ago and it is still a beautiful old place in a lovely town but I wasn't that impressed with the food.

I loved The Golden Steer in Las Vegas. Been around since 1958. Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin used to dine there. Fabulous “old school” ambiance, menu and service.

I forgot, the tavern in Alexandria where George Washington used to eat. Their curry was mild but good.
