How far will you drive to eat?
By Nancy Nichols |

Last week I asked the questions: “How likely are you to break out of your usual dining spots and try something new? Are you in an eating rut or do you try restaurants as soon as they open?
Several of you made some interesting comments on my Facebook page.
Rodney says he likes to give new restaurants two or three weeks before he tries them. “If [I] think it’s promising, then I give it another month and bring our meetup group in mass for a “stress” test. I like this plan. David admits he hates crowds unless he’s “lucky enough to be invited to Friends and Family” tasting. He must be a big shot diner! Les says he’s “always ready for new.” I admire his spirit. John and Darren admitted they tend to stay within a three-mile radius of home. John says if they pass the test, “they get on the regular rotation list.” Darren “tend(s) to hit up the same places – mainly because I know they are consistently good, both food and service.” Good stuff.
And you? How far did you venture this week to fill your belly?
