A new Nicole's location

A recent Times Union article mentioned that Nicole's On The River will be closing soon. They will be opening a new restaurant in Lake Asbury. (Nicole's On The River is owned by the same people who run Nicole's Cafe In The Country in Middleburg.) The third location will be at 2808 Henley Avenue in Lake Asbury. That address is where the old Pulcinella Italian restaurant used to be. I've had great meals at both Nicole's Cafe In The Country and Nicole's On The River, so I'm expecting more good food at the Henley Road restaurant, too!

*8/27/13 update: The Lake Asbury location will not have a buffet like Nicole's On The River did.

*9/10/13: The plans for a Lake Asbury location have been scrapped.

*2/19/14: A new Nicole's location is officially open. Nicole's On The River / Nicole's In Orange Park is on Jefferson and Blanding, across from Wendy's & Burger King. Same menu as Nicole's In The Country in Middleburg (which is staying open).

Golden Corral raises prices

This little nugget was in my Pepsi e-newsletter today. Yeah, 
Golden Corral is seriously raising their weekend prices by $2 through September 8th. I almost choked on my ice cream laughing.  I don't think anyone would pay that much for a Golden Corral meal to begin with, even if the infamous Golden Corral dumpster food video hadn't gone viral this summer. The only place I'd pay $13 for a buffet is a Disney resort, a special holiday brunch at a fancy hotel or a dockside restaurant where I know the seafood was caught that same day.
