HopLore Brewing, located in the Leesburg Mill building, opened its doors recently and response to the new venture has been positive. I had the chance to interview Stefan King, one of the partners in HopLore, and talked with him about his experience. Find out how and why they got started, learn about their food offerings and of course, get the lowdown on their beer. Continue reading “Getting To Know HopLore Brewing”
When it comes to my regular restaurant rotation for nights out in Warsaw with the wife and/or friends, Oak and Alley, Rua and One Ten typically occupy the limited spots in that lineup. In an effort to get out of that comfort zone, I recently visited two restaurants not in that lineup – Mad Anthony’s Lake City Tap House in downtown and Redwood Firewood Grill, located on North Detroit St. on Center Lake.

In case you haven’t heard, there was a taco contest going on this summer in Kosciusko County to find the best taco within our county’s boundaries. No, it’s not the one currently being hosted by the county’s visitor’s bureau. It was held by a baker’s dozen of taco-loving, salsa-dipping, refried-beans-scooping peeps just like me and you. The self-proclaimed “taco judges” traipsed all over the county, winding their way around unending lakes, dashing deer and spilled margaritas in search of the best taco served in a food truck, restaurant, grocery store or other eating establishment.

If there was an early frontrunner for 2017’s new restaurant of the year in Kosciusko County, George’s Highlander Bar and Grill, a steakhouse/bar & grill in Etna Green, would have to be it. Open just over a month when we visited for the first time, our experience at George’s reflected that of a well-established restaurant more than a brand new steak joint.

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.
