So here I was advocating all of these great ideas for getting the most out of restaurant week and the one place I go to ends up being a bust...typico!
My partner in hunger (as he calls himself) and I decided to venture out to Anthony's Pier 4 by the waterfront. It satisfied all of my criteria: it is an expensive place, a place I had never been and a place I wouldn't consider going any other time.
For our entrées, I ordered (upon the waiter's suggestion) their grilled halibut over couscous and grilled vegetables. I ended up getting a piece of dry rubber with a tasteless paste over top. (They could have used some of the excess oil from my salad perhaps...) I actually had to send it back. I am convinced they just gave me a mistake from the kitchen...little did they know who they were dealing with!
