"The Wandering Gourmet" is a displaced New Yorker who has committed himself to wandering the rural Northwest in search of great eating establishments.  Used to the truly great food of the East Coast, he has found restaurants tucked away in small towns that could easily compete with the best!  The only eating  establishments, small or large, that will be listed here, in my opinion are all "FIVE STARS"  "Bon Appetite"

After eating at one of these fine restaurants, take the time with your family or yourself to visit one or more of the many great places to see or play golf at the Bandon Dunes or Watson Ranch Golf.  Bandon Dunes is one of the top golf courses in the United States. Watson Ranch Golf is one of the best public golf courses in the State of Oregon. Please visit Watson Ranch Golfs web site at for directions and details about the club.  Bandon Dunes web site is Both Watson Ranch Golf and Bandon Dunes have fantastic food at their restaurants.

When you have completed your day, a way to thank me for providing this information free to you, it would be greatly appreciated if you could support both the Children’s Hospital and the VA Hospital in your area with your time and a donation of any amount no matter how small it may be. They need our help.  Thank you and the very best to you and your family.
