I am a long time fan of DiNic’s… maybe I should say I WAS a long time fan… going back YEARS… love the seasonings on their roast pork… love the roll, love the ‘just right’ sharpness of the provolone… love the SIZE of the sandwich) always shared… so save room for dessert.
I took my daughter to the RTM this weekend, I hadn’t been there in far too long, it seems.
We waited for a couple of seats at the counter and were waited on immediately.
The servers seemed to be mostly young, cute college girls… VERY friendly
Which was nice… but I suddenly started to feel like a tourist
Roast pork, rabe, provolone, we’re sharing, two drinks
First impression: not as big as I remember
Second Impression: Did I forget to ask for the extra ‘jus’, did I forget that? Was I supposed to ask? Clearly I don’t remember and this was… well kinda dry
Third: broccoli rabe was basically raw… so was the garlic on it… which due to the fact that there was very little meat on the sandwich totally overwhelmed the flavor of the whole thing
My daughter pushed the broccoli off her half of the sandwich, took a few bites and asked if it was okay that she NOT finish, so that she can save stomach room for "something better"
(shock/horror rushed over me!)
she was right though... the meat was as good as I remember, but the whole experience was disappointing.
