We set out on a particularly blustery evening and I can feel the little bit of skin I have exposed on my face, almost sting, as I walk the short distance from the car to the dining room. I am then greeted with a rush or warmth as we select our table. Ah, I feel better already.
To begin...any guesses?
I typically do not express a vodka preference when I order a Cosmopolitan. However, I am going to in the future if asked. I think I have tasted enough to know the difference between a future headache and a pleasant cocktail.
We peruse the menu for a few minutes, but we are fairly easy and predictably pleased on this frigid weeknight. I knew well in advance that I simply wanted a burger and fries.
This particular version was smothered in grilled onions and mushrooms, served with a nice pile of crispy fries. My craving for meat and potatoes, albeit fast food version, was satisfied.
Open Steak Sandwich
Topped with mushrooms and onions, our younger son had a steak sandwich and fries. Standard fare, traditionally prepared and served.
Chicken for the Mr.
Seeing pasta like this just makes me a little sad. I don't know why I always want to see the pasta completely coated in the sauce when served, but I truly do. The Mr. was satisfied with the portion size and the chicken itself.
The owner walks among the people in his dining room and I do love that personal touch. Across the room I see a young boy in a New York Knicks jersey. #17. Do you know who wears that number? Cleanthony Early - who is a Pine Bush High School graduate. Always exciting to see local folks succeed.
We head back out into the frozen air. We are a Fed Well family and stop off at the local grocery store before the next snow storm arrives. We need bread and milk like everyone else.
