We are taking a lil' roadtrip this weekend. While researching hotels to stay at on Saturday I discovered a link to a restaurant in the area we are visiting named "Corned Beef & Co." To say my heart skipped a beat ...well, my "Yippppeee!" woke up the dog.
I am a HUGE fan of corned beef, especially corned beef and cabbage, with boiled potatoes and carrots. It is my go-to birthday menu [if we can even find corned beef in September-how can corned beef be "out of season" like, ever?] but can you imagine? A restaurant devoted to CORNED BEEF? I figured the Skippyfamily could just drop me off - go on their appointments [College shopping for our daughter] and I would just sit and savor [several] servings of my most favorite meal in existence. Oh! And perhaps we could go back for breakfast on Sunday - and Pooldad could have corned beef hash. Yeah baby!
With my hotel search forgotten - I concentrated on locating a menu to read [& drool] over their scrumptious descriptions of the most wonderful of meals.
Humph. Found the menu. Lunch & Dinner - okay, no breakfast, but I can still hang for lunch & dinner, right? No. no. and. no.
Imagine my surprise and disappointment when I discovered:
They have a FOUR page menu - and on this FOUR page menu there is ONE listing for corned beef...and it is a sandwich. Did I mention it is a FOUR page menu? They named themselves "Corned Beef & Company" and they offer one lousy sandwich - which I can get anywhere [or make myself, better] and I could find nary a hint of a slice of roast, a potato or a carrot. [They serve wood oven pizzas...woooooo [snark] pasta and steaks with lame-o sandwiches I can get anywhere.
What a tease. And a stupid name.
