I eat. I drink. I'm not overly merry. www.sprint2thetable.com
I have a 3 day pass for sale (classes and tasting tents) - it's a $500 ticket but will take the best (reasonable) offer. Shoot me a note if you're interested: lauraehall13 at gmail dot com.
That's what I'll be praying for on Christmas Eve. Especially the better wine lists - when Hogue Riesling is listed under "Interesting Wines" on a list, I die a little inside.
I ate there recently and found everything to be under-seasoned. I never thought I'd say this - hate salty food - but a little salt and some red pepper flakes would be a great addition.
I am so glad you wrote this. I'll be forwarding it to friends the next time they try to talk me into visiting one on a perfectly good Saturday night. LOL!
Seriously, I'd rather eat McDonald's than Outback. And the last time I ate at Longhorn, it was a "test" store that listed all the calories on the menu. (Side note: good thing you only ate 1/2 of the Caesar.) Due to offensive nutrition information (not necessarily opposing its presence, but - if you do - try to include a menu item that won't cause a heart attack), I ordered the Sierra Chicken. The chicken was so salty I couldn't eat half even after peeling off the over-seasoned outer layer.
As a health-conscious food-lover, I always appreciate being able to have a delicious, healthy meal out. From another side of the coin, I think being able to create a meal that doesn't rely too much on salt/sugar/cream to is an opportunity to showcase a chef's talent (not that i don't love a decadent meal occasionally, but at the very least do it with good, clean ingredients).
