I had breakfast with my whole family at the 600 on Sunday. No complaints at all. My point is not that Miles City is lacking "fine dining" as you seem to think of it. My point is the entire restaurant industry has lost it's chefs and people that know how to cook. We now have fry cooks and people that warm up food that is prepared in a factory somewhere vs. making an entree, or side dish, from scratch. Food Service of America, S.E. Rykoff, and Sysco now decide what will be available and how it is prepared.
That's why I suggested the home cooked type places we still have, like the 600 Cafe. And I do miss Shirley's, too. I had lunch at Ben Franklin yesterday.
If I want fine dining I do it at home. Last night was Lasasgna with fresh marinara, fresh mozzarella, ground beef combined with a touch of Italian sausage, plenty of garden fresh herbs, all layered between homemade noodles 3" wide. I eat with gusto. Damn, you bet!
