The Belmont - Sigh
Dear Reader, you do remember my last experience at The Belmont, do you not? I got charged $8 for a Virgin Mary; felt old, fat, and ugly; yet experienced the greatest macaroni and cheese of all time, so all was well in my world that night. This past Wednesday was Foreign Correspondent D's birthday, and you may think me a great friend for risking my self esteem to deliver her bday gift to her (a much needed sangria pitcher), but alas, I have a confession to make: it was all about the macaroni and cheese.
This time when I showed up (and I showed up late so I wouldn't have to sit there for a half hour staring at Les Jeunesse), I was smart enough to 1. order a drink right away, and 2. order something alcoholic. Oh, my drink was non-drinkable and for some odd reason kept expanding every time I took a drink from the glass (normally this might be a good thing but when you are trying to get rid of a drink it can be quite frustrating.)
So what was going on that night? The macaroni and cheese sucked! It was rather dry and I think that it didn't have any cheese in it - it tasted like it was made with a really weak white sauce et c'etait toute. Thank god that we ordered it before 7 pm when it was still half priced (even at $6.50 it wasn't worth it.) Not only that but the fish and chips, which I formerly had raved about, weren't very good either. It could have been a perfect night (it was FCD's bday, and there was noticeable lack of euro-trash on the patio) if not for the lousy food.
Who is that sassy minx eating the tartare?
Please, no one hold my birthday party here. Please. Thank you.
I think that I need to start drinking that drink that E with a K orders - she always has a great time at The Belmont!
