Kingston, with caveats

Gastronomos | | Nov 13, 2013 07:31 AM

Looks like I gotta get myself to Kingston on Sunday.
The older person I will be with likes simple, accessible places that are more like diners with real home cooking.
I'd like to avoid diners with this person as they really do not do any home style cooking anymore, at all.
And when I've been to a diner with this older person, he orders a burger and complains about it and wants the 1970's diners with the three daily specials (blue plate?) like braised beef short ribs, beef stew, and anything "saucy" like that from a steam table.
The only other caveat is no bars. If the place has a bar that one can 'belly up' to, no dice. A service bar that a waitperson can pour jug wine into a carafe is OK, just not a "drinking establishment" or 'sports bar' no matter how good the food.
Any suggestions for a mid-day Sunday dinner is greatly appreciated.
I thank you all for all your recs!
