Usually I avoid Summerlicious but decided to try it since I live not too far. This was the first day for it, and I had a really nice lunch for $20. The starter was a cold beet soup with balsamic gelatin cubes which was sweet and refreshing. For the main, I decided on the skirt steak, twice-cooked. It came with a small salad and potato sticks (haystacks). The meat was really tender -- the server explained that they cook it sous-vide for for hours then pan sear. The dessert was the highlight. I had the Eton Mess, which is a black pepper raspberry soup with sweet cream and meringue. The sweetness of the topping really complemented the tanginess of the soup.
It's the same menu with a few additions for dinner.
I've heard so many horror stories about Summerlicious, I was hesitant about going, but I had a nice experience. The staff were very accomodating, even if it was obvious people were dining there just because of Summerlicious.
