8 • NEW CASTLE NEWS, WEDNESDAY, MAY 29, 1946 BON APPETITE PAR MONSIEUR GOURMET (A Guide to Good Eating Places) Seeing as how M. Gourmet is strictly a traditionalist in the matter of the mechanics of eating his dinner, you can imagine the doubts and misgivings with which he accepted an invitation from friends to partake of some \Chicken in the Ruff\ at the Cross­ roads Bowling Alleys and Restaurant, corner of Bedford Road and Lexington Avenue in near Mount Kisco. As described to Gourmet this specialty of the house sounded like some other barbaric American table custom of the type that is often anath­ ema to a real Continental. For you see, you must eat this dish with your fingers which, your grandmother may have told you, really were made before forks. Southern Fried Chicken and French Fries A basket is popped in front of you that contains southern style fried chicken, french fried potatoes, and serviette, but no cutlery. Gourmet who may have come to scoff, it must be con­ fessed, remained to lick his fingers and murmur contentedly into an empty basket of well cleaned chicken bones. For the chicken was deliciously cooked to a golden brown and the french fries were the substantial and tender kind that are neither too greasy nor too dry. <> Bar Offers Many Brands of Scotch It was a surprise to Gourmet to find at the Crossroads a fine big, high-ceiling dining room that could comfortably accommo­ date about fifty people. He had always considered the establish­ ment a place for bowling only and not being addicted to strenu­ ous exercise in any form had never ventured in before. But be­ sides the dining room there is a fine big bar which was amazing with many brands of Scotch whiskey to choose from. Roadside Stand, Too Also there is a roadside stand which offers that luxury of curb service and those snacks of food like hamburgers, franks, etc., desserts and beverages which people on the road so relish. Bowling Goes On All Summer A friendly, agreeable and attractive waitress always enhances good food for M. Gourmet and such were the unmistakable quali­ fications of Nita who did the serving and is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jos Pascale, proprietors of the Crossroads. The four­ teen bowling alleys at the other end of the building are specially tended by Carmina and Charles Schulze and the demand for this pastime is so great locally that it has been decided to keep the alleys open and active all during the Summer months. Other Dishes With Knife and Fork You needn't stay away if you happen to like the sound of \Chicken in the Ruff\ while your spouse doesn't like the idea of eating with fingers. There are numerous other dishes such as Roast Beef, Sirloin Steak, Franks and Beans all of which are served with the customary eating utensils. The \Chicken in the Ruff\ costs $1.25 and the other entrees proportionately priced. Cakes, pies and ice cream are offered for desserts but Gourmet passed these up as he usually does when he finds the main course especially satisfying.
