A favorite breakfast place in Baltimore — and y’all will all be coming for Bouchercon 2008, right? — is the Golden West on 36th Street. The menus are all placed inside old album covers, which also have been used to decorate the walls in the bathrooms. I ordered from a Lester Scruggs album, while my dining companion was given a Pete Fountain.
And in the ladies room . . . yes, there was “First Family”!
Breakfast quesadilla, huevos rancheros, and Frito pie highly recommended, along with lime-aid and sopapillas.
Look for it on the Tess Tour of Baltimore (she eats in its original incarnation in By a Spider’s Thread) when I post it to my website in, say, December.
