Default 1/2 OT maybe: restaurant recommendations, and a recipe.

In the first week of July my employer is holding their annual company
meeting in Yardley, PA. I will be there for three days. For those who
don't know - which is probably most of you - Yardley is located 8.4
miles NW of Trenton, NJ and 31 miles NE of Philadelphia, PA. I was
wondering if there is any place nearby that is worth visiting for
lunch/dinner etc? Any recommendations would be appreciated.


now for other 1/2:

Sausage Jambalaya

2 Tbs. olive oil
1-1/2 c. yellow onion, chopped
1/2 c. celery
1/2 c. green onion, chopped
1/2 c. green pepper, chopped
1/4 c. fresh parsley, chopped
1 c. tomato sauce
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 c. dry white wine
1 1/2 c. long grain rice (uncooked)
Tabasco sauce or ground cayenne pepper (to taste)
Salt (to taste)
1 lb. smoked sausage, sliced thick
In a large, deep skillet, heat oil over a medium-high heat and saute the
onions, green onions, green pepper and parsley until the onions are clear.
Stirring, add the tomato sauce, garlic and wine, then the rice, salt and
pepper, smoke sausage and enough water to cover the rice by about 1 inch.
Cook until most of the sauce is gone. Reduce the heat to low, cover and
simmer for 40-45 minutes. Serves 6.

What's your price range? What type of cuisine do you prefer? Yardly has
some good restaurants, and if you want a real treat, drive north a bit to
New Hope and treat yourself to dinner at the Black Bass Inn, which is
probably one of the oldest inns in the United States. The Black Bass Inn
overlooks the Delaware River. It is very formal and fairly expensive. I
believe reservations are required. You might also try posting your
question on the rec.food.restaurants group or phl.food.

If you want some of the best Italian food you can ever hope to eat, hop in
your car and drive down I95 to South Philly (about a 30 minute drive) and
have dinner at Ralph's, which is definitely the oldest family owned
Italian restaurant in the country. Its my favorite Italian restaurant.
Bring cash, as Ralph's does not accept credit cards.

The price range is not an issue. As for the cuisine I will try pretty
much anything. The biggest limiting factor in my options is that I will
not have much access to a vehicle the few times that the company doesn't
have my time occupied while I am there. But thanks for the suggestions.
