I recently had an old friend do a big favor for me and want to take him to dinner as a thank you. He said "Remember the salmon with egg sauce at Spenger's". I said "No, but I was addicted to the lobster thermidor served on boiled potatoes that you could get in the 'to go' place. Any places like that still exist that are good quality? Even Tadich Grill, Scoma's, John's Grill menus don't seem to have the combinations of rich newburg or eggy sauces and sea food (and for me, boiled potatoes). Will travel many miles from Berkeley to find a place (preferably on public transport). Don't want healthy or nouvelle. Any help from fellow chowhounds would be greatly appreciated.
