I'm glad that you liked it. Unfortunately, those of us who live here remember it 20 years ago when it was less run down and the food was less Sysco/Gordon Food Service and more fresh. :(

Sadly, Phil Schmidt's has now closed.

Diners and burger joints in Indiana needed for summer jaunts

mmmmm...CJ's. They have the best burger hands down!

Anything worthy in South Bend, IN?

The food at Yesterday's is good - not brilliant - but good.

Desert is superb. I think the portions are a bit much, myself, but speaking as a pastry chef (not theirs - for the cynics), I can vouch for their desert menu. Go for desert and coffee.

Ciao's was inconsistent at best, and overpriced. They have closed and were replaced by a place with a German - maybe Hungarian - name.

Smoked Cheddar Soufflé

Yes, you could portion this into smaller ramekins. The cooking time will definitely change. I hope you have a lighted oven because you'll need to watch them. I would estimate that you should bake them for a third less time than the large dish.

Fresh nutmeg is a must in a cheese souffle or a complex macaroni and cheese. Use the nutmeg.
