It's a burger joint.

Lots of pop art on the walls and around the dining room. Noisy but normal for this kind of place.

SO and I shared an order of onion rings.
I had a mushroom cheese burger, garlic fries and a beer
She had a chicken Caprese sandwich, sweet potato fries and a glass of wine.

The check was $46 before tip.

The onion rings and booze were really good.
but...
The fries were mealy and limp
The burger was dry

SO liked her chicken sandwich.

They have a grand total of four deserts on the menu.

Hopefully I like it, and then I can buy the fillets to use instead of chicken breasts. I always wanted to be a vegetarian, but I just don't think I can do it.
Anyway, we'll see how my Quorn bolognese turns out tonight, you never know, I might be a convert! Fingers crossed it's a success with my family.
Good luck! Let us know how it turns out!

I started with some leftover rib roast trimmings and bones. Put them in the oven with some goodies and made a stock which I used tonight and will use tomorrow for a beef veggie soup.
Tonight was Beef Ragu.

I finally made that chicken cacciatore that I have been threatening to make for days. I think I have made tastier cacciatore with the same recipe, but not bad. It was awfully wet. I might make soup with the sauce. I served it with brown basmati rice because I was tired of pasta.
