A Page County Grown Trifecta, part 1
Main Street is one of three restaurant members of Page County Grown. Along with the others (the Mimslyn Inn and Artisans Cafe - find them here: http://pagecountygrown.com/local/restaurants/), Main Street uses fresh, locally grown ingredients whenever they can.
My choice last week was the tarragon chicken salad sandwich, paired with a carrot cake cupcake. Now, when I posted this to Facebook, there was an inspired discussion about how tarragon chicken salad was a sophisticated nouveau cuisine entry on the American Cafe menu in the 1980s.
And it was a pleasant surprise that I had run into Chef Arnaud from Main Street the day before down in Harrisonburg - he stopped by to say hello in the Barnes and Noble, where I was writing a few blog posts.
In any case, if you're in Luray during lunch, and you're feeling in the mood for something fresh and homemade, here's a recommendation. You'll come away with a wholesome feeling from your meal, and you'll have contributed to our great Page County thing.
