Started off with the champagne cocktail, cognac, lemon juice and champagne. Fortunately, got it for the happy hour price! Yep, it the one right at the top of the menu, the French 75. YUM!
The bread was okay. The butter was excellent European style.
Then.......dinner. The LUKE burger and pomme frites. When you serve french fries in a fancy silver cup they are called pomme frites, but a burger is still a burger no matter what.
The burger had bacon and carmelized onions on it. Sigh....The bacon was not crispy (uncooked fat is NOT good) and I discovered I HATE carmelized onions. Pfftt..phooey...spit! and it was cold. I know, it looks good, doesn't it?
Pomme frites, alas, also not hot, LUKE warm.
Now other people had some different dishes that they said were good and some people had stuff that was so-so. Honestly, I have had better burger and FRIES at Red Robin.
Now, it wasn't all bad. The cocktail was great and the company of some new friends was fun. Here are some photos of the evening.
Dear Chef Besh,
Please come to San Antonio and check out your new restaurant, Luke. I think you need to whip these guys into shape and tell them they need to serve food HOT, especially pomme frites. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Yours Truly, Robin
