Intimate but sunny, the Glendale Farm Restaurant in Neersville, Virginia serves a variety of foods grown on the premises or nearby ("sourced locally wherever possible.")
We ran into one of the owners, Author Clark, Jr., a Culinary Institute of America graduate, when we arrived. He stressed his commitment to the farm-to-table concept as well as pointed out his early entry into what is now a "hot" trend. (Grandale opened October 1, 2005).
Their fiddlehead omelette is fresh, tasty, and a little bit unusual with a pleasant, almost nutty flavor.

If you're passing through Tok, Alaska this summer - which is unavoidable if you are traveling the Alaska Highway - you'll want to stop at Fast Eddy's, part of Young's Motel complex.
Fast Eddy's is one of two restaurants open in winters (several more open in summertime, some geared specifically for tourists, cruise line busses and RVers - and that doesn't count Jen's Thai serving delicious food from her kitchen window).
from Wikipedia: In one version, the name Tok is derived from the Athabascan word for "peaceful crossing." The U.S. Geological Survey notes that the name "Tok River" was in use for the nearby river around 1901, and the Athabascan name of "Tokai" had been reported for the same river by Lt. Allen in 1887. In another version the name is derived from the English words "Tokyo camp," although the major war benefit was supporting the transfer of airplanes to the Soviet Union. Another version claims the name was derived from the canine mascot for one of the Engineer units that built the highways.
