The State Capital of Pennsylvania: Harrisburg!

I arrived in Harrisburg, Sunday, September 7th in the early evening and made my home the Comfort Inn on Riverside by the Susquehanna River. Riverside Park is right outside of the motel so it was easy to find and gaze on the river and see the many bridges of Harrisburg.

I was told by the receptionist at the Comfort Inn that 2nd Street from Market on up is what is called restaurant row. He felt confident that I would find something good to eat and could walk to it. It was Sunday so it might not be as easy to find something good.

I tried several restaurants but they were a bit noisy with loud TV’s or speakers so I continued on down the street looking for a quiet place to eat dinner. I found this restaurant that looked promising and entered. I was seated in a pleasant area. It was not going to be inexpensive. I ordered the filet mignon and it was delicious. I had 8 white beans positioned around the plate in some sauce and a few pieces of baby asparagus. The dinner was delicious but I not a big fan of Nouveau cooking if that what it is called these days. I did eat all of the filet mignon.

I meandered back by to my motel along River Front Park and curled up for the evening.
