The family will be in the Upland/Ontario area for xmas and from what I can tell on this board, the culinary prospects seem grim.
Can anyone lend me a helping hand? Specifically, I'd love recommendations for non-chain restaurants (unless regionally unique) that aren't screamingly trendy nor family-style establishments. We are pretty open to all kinds of cuisine.
Any good bakeries in the area? Specialty markets or food shops? Is there a Trader Joes? Any neighborhoods/areas that would be fun to check out (for culinary and retail delights)? A website that I shold check out for addt'l suggestions?
