Daniel's Aioli - Daniel Boulud's Key 3, David Tanis on seaweed, Alice Medrich on desserts, Frank DeCaro plays Stump the Cook.
Perry is a lovely, sleepy little town and the kind of place where everyone says hi when you pass on the street. It's also the kind of place where the whole town gathers at the local diner "Kumback Lunch" for the good homey food they've been serving since 1926: cinnamon rolls and biscuits with sausage gravy for breakfast, hamburgers for lunch and terrific homemade pies anytime. Michael went for one of the house specialties, a baked potato stuffed with barbecued beef and salsa. Kumback Lunch has a great sense of history. A story printed on the back of the menu tells of the time gangster Pretty Boy Floyd entered the diner brandishing a gun and demanding the biggest steak in the house. The cook complied.
