Eats: Diner home-style

  • On each table at HomeGrown, there’s a printed a message: “HomeGrown loves you.” And it’s true: As soon as you walk in the door, the Noah’s Ark quilt, the chockfull chalkboard and the view of the spotless kitchen send a message of the restaurant’s affection for its diners. There’s love in the food, too: The special smoked trout and peaches taste like a treat dreamed up just for you by a friend. The mac and cheese bites taste so familiar that their decadence seems quite healthy. Finish it off with a cookie ice cream sandwich, and feel the love. — E.P.
