They have 4 beers on tap and offer 14 domestic and 11 imports, does it get better than this? I got a Pete's Strawberry Blond in a chilled pilsner glass and my husband go a huge strawberry milk shakes. Irene and I had been craving lamb ever since we checked out the dinner menu at Le Chambord (where rack of lamb for 2 was $70) . We both ordered the lamb and it was great, nice slices of tender lamb, mashed potatoes and mixed vegatables served with mint jelly and a salad. All for $10. We didn't order any of the onion rings but we were facinated by the serving that was deliviered to the couple across from us. It was huge and it looked great. I think we made them nervous the way we stared at that plate.
Their motto says it all: "Think Globally, Act Locally, Dress Casually".
We loved the names of some of their specialties, one of their frozen drinks is "One Free Hour in a Candy Store" made from chambord, amaretto, oreo cookies and vanilla ice cream. One of their ice cream treats is Scoupe de ville- all our ice creams, with hot fudge, bananas, nuts, strawberries and whipped cream. It comes with 2 spoons.
There was a real mix of people here, families, seniors, couples and young couples.
The bread is a warm loaf of sesame bread served on a hot skillet. They even brought us a second loaf.
We didn't eat dessert but I got a rice pudding to go and frankly it was the only disappointment of the whole evening, it was very pedestrian.
P.S. I have to go back here, for breakfast they have Banana's Foster french toast. Doesn't that sound decadent?
