Ristorante I Ricchi

1220 19th St NW
Washington, DC 20036
(202) 835-0459

This is the only restaurant that requires a credit card to hold reservation.

Very chincy and average, an over priced restaurant. My review on Yelp

A cute little French restaurant in the Eastern Market, near Capitol.

My review on Yelp: We visited in last August, 2013. It’s pretty French -:). A mid age lady seems to be doing everything, owner or manager? There were patrons who came before us and stayed after we left. Easy street parking. A little above average, both food and service were decent. Out door dinning area is on a quite street.

Elmira NY

A mere 230 miles away from New York and 15 miles from Corning (GLW, that has US$8 billion revenue in 2012) has corn fields on its main street. On both sides.

corn fields line both sides of the Main Street!

My goodness. Hard to believe.

The water’s journey


@ Watkins Glen state park:

Below you is Glen Creek, which begins on Sugar Hill nearly ten miles from here.
Across from you, the water of Rainbow Falls is one of many springs and brooks that feed Glen Creek on its trip to Seneca Lake. It may take 25 years for the water flowing by you today to reach the Atlantic Ocean. Can you trace the water’s northeast journey?

Watkins Glen

Watkins Glen’s Main Street. The American flag and the checker flag.

I wouldn’t want to be here on a race day. Can’t imagine how jammed would it be.

Is this the only city that has a state park entrance located on the Main Street?
