We'd really welcome some restaurant ideas for both these cities. Generally we're looking for some good, regional home cooking, Road Food a la Jane and Michael Stern or even some middle to upscale places - as long as they are regional in flavor and not part of a national chain. And if they have charm and personality that's great too! We don't need ideas for ethnic food as we get a really wide range of that here in southern CA. We've heard about a number of places in particular as well, so if you have any thoughts on these in addition to any other ideas please feel free to critique and/or recommend. In Springfield we've heard about Walleye Stop, Boyd's New Generation and a place to go to for a terrific "horseshoe" called Darcy's Pint. We'd love to know where to go to get the definitive horseshoe. As far as Topeka goes we've pretty much come up empty.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
