wow, rock. just wow.
i haven't had a good flank steak in a long time.
i had to work late today for training on cbs's new online streaming news channel, so i didn't get to sleep until the afternoon and then wake up until after dinner. i ended up picking up, or rather got ripped off with takeout italian.
i ordered a simple chicken parm with a side of spaghetti and a side salad from a glorified pizza place nearby. it was $19.70 for nothing more than what you can get in any pizza joint around here. in fact, the side salad ($3) was about a cup - maybe less- of chopped iceberg lettuce, a single, halved cherry tomato, and 2 shavings of a slice of onion.
when i asked the guy why it was more than what it said on the menu, he said there were extra charges for takeout, for having the pasta in a separate container than the chicken (it said "over" pasta), and for asking for the salad dressing on the side. so $15 chicken parm turned into almost $20.
scratch that place off my list.
nickel and diming is a good way to lose customers.
