A quick east coast run

After leaving Nashville last Monday afternoon, my first stop was Mrs. Rowe's, in Virginia. It was a decent breakfast, better than my last visit, but honestly, I would have been better served at the Southern Kitchen, up the road in New Market.
Next morning, Ken8038 and I went for Italian hot dogs, at Big Blue in Linden. Ken tells me this place is on the verge of being discovered in the hot dog world. I really liked the atmosphere, but Stewart's Key Lime soda is awful.
Next day, in Red Hook, NY, I lunched at Griff's Diner. They fixed me a great pepperoni sandwich on a hard roll, along with a bowl (OK, a styrofoam cup) of mushroom soup.
My next food stop was Whitey's Fish Camp, near Jacksonville, Fl. You guys going there next month should definitely include this place on your tour. I contacted The Travelling Man as I passed through Melbourne, but we couldn't make a connection.
In West Palm Beach, on Sunday at 4:30 in the morning, if you're in need of a Cuban sandwich, Havana is the place to be. Best Cuban I've had in years.
The following day in Orlando, I found a Latin place called Tu Casa, on Orange Blossom Trail. They had a very nice cafeteria line, and the owner was awesome. No photos, but one day I'll learn how to post pics.
