I am a connoisseur of sorts when it comes to the restaurants in Pendleton. I am a regular at the Bank Restaurant and have had quite a few good meals at Sahms, Daddio’s, and others. But I am particularly excited for the new restaurant called Puzzles to open up at the end of this month. I was bummed when Cabbage Rose decided to move to Anderson because it was such a cute lunch place that gave you that old-time, small town feel. I love the concept that owner Trenton Parker is developing, a modern feel with a hometown touch. I am also eager to see him use as many locally grown ingredients as possible on his fine dining menu. With its central location and passionate owners I foresee myself enjoying quite a few lunches there in the months (and hopefully years) to come! So lets support our local business owners and enjoy a good meal in the process!
