Keen's signature mutton chop:

 

1. Tasted awesome

2. Gave me explosive diarrhea

 

The wife's filet mignon did not give her, uh, #2.  Stick with the steak.

I've had the mutton twice and loved it, no gastro-intestinal issues. I'd rather have that over a steak any day.

Years ago, when I was in Canada, I won a DWAA award and was invited to NY for the awards banquet at Keen's. Unfortunately, I couldn't make it and have yet to eat at the restaurant. 

 

Thanks for reminding me. Think I might go next week.

there's something weirdly endearing about those old steakhouses. "You want a side of spinach? No problem, eleven dollas." No new restaurant could get away with that.

No, new restaurants would sous vide it, shape it like a spinach leaf, nitrogen blast it, serve it on a himalayan salt block and charge you $32. And it would taste worse than the steakhouse spinach.

Yep! Those sides are $$$.

The mutton was fantastic, no diarrhea reported from anyone and I sure didn't get it. The T-Bone was really tasty as well.

This seems like win/win to me.

G, I always took you for an excellent parent.

Doesn't your kid ever say, "I want a fu#cking pie"?
post #6929 of 11479

Not yet.   

 

Although one of them (5.5 years old) mentioned last week that some kid at camp said "the F word".   Wife and I looked at each other... "oh? and... what is that?...".  "I can't tell you, we can't say the F word - or the B word!".

 

Needless to say the whole exchange left us a bit puzzled
