Food that made us love the Barnsider

Color this Barnsider fan traumatized.

News that one of Dayton's favorite restaurants will shut its doors Saturday makes me think about all the wonderful times and all of the great food I have had at the restaurant located at 5202 N. Main St.

It has been an Dayton institution for more than 40 years.

With classic drinks (the Manhattan is killer)  and well-tested grub, the Barnsider is one of few Dayton supper clubs still kicking around.

Oh how I will miss the cheese and bacon au gratin potatoes, Buffalo shrimp, buttery escargot, cheese-covered French onion soup and pork chops, some of the very best in town.

The list could go on.
