This won't come as news to those of us that eat at some of our amazing local restaurants, but it's nice when national recognition happens. That's exactly what's happened to a Hannibal restaurant that was just named one of the most "enchanting" in all of Missouri.

Congrats to LaBinnah Bistro who were called out by Only In Your State with a nice article that said they are "An Enchanting Restaurant In Missouri That’s Straight Out Of A Fairytale".

Why did one of our local restaurants get this national shoutout? It seems that Only In Your State was impressed by their history and almost perfect reviews on sites like Yelp and TripAdvisor.

I don't want to sound like a commercial because this isn't, but I do know that they are one of the many nice restaurants in Hannibal and Quincy when my family and friends choose when they're wanting to up their eating out game. If you're gonna brag about our area (and why not?), you can talk about the fact that we don't lack for great dining out options that also include the historic vibe that many travel thousands of miles here for.

The entire Only In Your State article is worth a read if only to see how those who in many cases live states away view our local places. It's a small thing, but you never know when something like this will cause someone to travel here to see what the fuss is about and that helps us all.
