Two New El Faro Restaurants Open In Warsaw

The group behind the two El Faro restaurants in Warsaw, Indiana might have just opened two locations but they’re not new to the scene. They’ve been successfully running La Troje for years so if experience counts towards anything, they’ll be just fine with two more restaurants, thank you very much. That, in turn, makes me as giddy as a One Directioner at all of the new singles coming from the former boy band members. That’s pretty darn happy.

Even as fuel prices continue to hover at levels significantly lower than last year, traveling for a family can still be expensive and time consuming, especially if traveling anywhere in an automobile is required.

Modest but Tasty Menu Makes Pierceton’s Old Train Depot the Little Restaurant That Could

Even though it’s only about 15 minutes east of Warsaw, finding someone in my hometown who has recently been to the Old Train Depot restaurant in Pierceton is nearly impossible.

It sits less than a quarter mile south of U.S. 30, the main thoroughfare for Warsaw denizens heading to and fro from Fort Wayne for their latest shopping excursion, the thought of stopping at this unique eatery never crosses their minds. While the lakers who call the Lake Tippecanoe and Wawasee areas home during the summer have made it a regular stop on their culinary tour, which results in a bustling business in the warmer months, the coziness of the unique atmosphere should cause the population of Kosciusko County to take notice and result in this attraction gaining the recognition it rightfully deserves.
