Thanks for the boost to city din­ing

RE: Ci­tyDish win­ner

Ku­dos to Emma Reilly for her col­umn about var­i­ous foods that de­fine Hamil­ton. You can travel to any city and find places to eat that are unique to the area, but I have al­ways been proud of the se­lec­tion we have here and are fa­mil­iar with all of them. And al­though there are a lot of hid­den gems in the Ham­mer, too many to men­tion here, the fi­nal­ists in her poll were an im­pres­sive bunch. The only prob­lem I had with this is that al­though Tim Hor­tons got its start here, it is hardly a lo­cal con­cern any­more, but we can let that slide. My point is, even if Toronto or New York has their go to places, so do we and that’s im­por­tant be­cause we all love food right? But when my friends from the area who now live in Alabama re­turn for a visit, where do they make sure they go while here? Easter­brooks for a hot­dog and Den­ninger’s for the Euro­pean de­lights. And who doesn’t love a good home­town story eh? Carl W. Am­bridge, Hamil­ton
