What is DD Extra
Our core mission is monthly dinner on Saturday nights in the Western Suburbs. Periodically Delightful Dining explores additional restaurants that may be more exotic cuisine, regionally farther away or not available on Saturday nights. The events are labeled DD Extras and will appear here on the left side of the website. You will receive an email if you are on the Delightful Dining email list. You can sign up here.
Keep an eye out for our first DD Extra of the season!
The Case of the Hapless Sailor
Four Delightful Diners were up in Door County for what they thought would be a relaxing vacation only to find a dead body on the beach. Jenny said that she did not think it was an accident as the police had ruled.
“What makes you think it wasn’t an accident?” asked Betty.
“His shoes!?” asked Sue “What makes you say that?”
“They were dress shoes not boat shoes or sneakers. No one would go boating on purpose in dress shoes.”
Linda looked up from her tablet. “Listen to this. I found this on a news blog from last week. ‘Local restauranteur is the only obstacle in the way of the downtown redevelopment project headed by billionaire Chet Lyons.’
“Let’s go to the restaurant and see what we can find out about this.” Linda suggested.
Le Paris was located in downtown Egg Harbor. The building façade had intricately carved gargoyles and Corinthian columns. They stepped in to a warm inviting restaurant and were greeted by a woman in her mid 20s. “I am sorry we are closed today. The owner tragically died yesterday.”
Linda spoke up “Yes I know Karen. Do you remember me? I was a friend of Chef Paul.”
“Oh yes. It is terrible what happened. I didn’t think Chef even liked boating” Karen said giving Linda a hug.
“We don’t think it was a boating accident. We saw the article on line about the redevelopment project.”
Karen asked “Do you think that he was murdered?”
“We do” said Linda.
