Written by Maggie Hoskins Illustration by Madison Otten If you love trying new sushi as much as I do, then you might enjoy Japon. I have tried over a handful of different sushi places since I moved here, and I have found myself returning to Japon over and over. The restaurant, which recently fell into new ownership, has been around for many years. They are a cozy and clean place, serving fresh, authentic Japanese cuisine, and always make me feel welcome and taken care of each time I visit.

We all know IHOP or Denny’s, but what about the small local diners? Great Scotts Eatery is one of the diners that gets overlooked, even though they have a huge sign at the side of U.S. Route 36.
