    I just read that. Very sad - I drove 90 minutes to eat there a few years ago (while on vacation in Leelanau). What an excellent restaurant.

      What a shame. Tapawingo was just GREAT in every way possible. That's a real loss.

        So what is good these days - north of TC. I've read good things about The Cove, La Becasse, Trattoria Funistrada, blu, Nonna’s Ristorante, North
Centennial Inn. Any of it true?

          I don't know about those places, but Rowe Inn is still open. www.roweinn.com

            I had a great meal at La Becasse July '08.
            They have a couple good deals on wine as well.
            Also had an amazing meal in TC at Stella.

              La Becasse has always been good as well as Bowers Harber on Mission pointe. The Boat House on the point is perhaps a bit more chow worthy in that it's off the beaten path. If you get a little further North we really enjoy The Walloon Lake Inn.
