Driving home on Friday night, I passed Alfonso’s, a solid Italian restaurant in the strip mall at the corner of Buckner and Northcliff. It was a little after 7 and there were about 20 people waiting outside for a table. Is the food there so good it merits such a following? Not especially. But it’s the only halfway decent, non-chain restaurant in the area.
A week ago, word of Another Broken Egg led to a discussion of the paucity of dining options in the Casa Linda/Little Forest Hills area. Consider this post another plea to any chefs out there looking for a location amid hungry, patient, would-be customers. I promise to be a loyal one (provided your food is good and appropriately priced).
Also up for discussion: What other neighborhoods are in dire need of dining options?
