A Visit to Frinzi's Charcoal Pit in Easton

Ok...so I finally went and tried this place. Frinzi's is located on Butler St behind the Easton court house.Upon driving by it on my way back into NYC, the name of it invoked images of coal blackened hunks of meets turning over s spit sizzling juices. I will not waste too much of your time with a long drawn out review....the place sucked. It was bar food but down a notch. The charcoal it is used as advertised, but crap cooked is still crap.

There is good news however.....

My parents dragged me to a place just over the border in Belvidere NJ off or route 519 called Red Wolf. ..man size helpings of porterouse and NY Strip. Need less to say, it was the best steak I have had within a 1 hour radius of the Lehigh Valley. Its a bar for sure, basking in the shadow of what looks to be a nuclear power plant complete with large concave cooling towers. The NY strip seems to be the best bet while the porterhouse, not aged and not nearly as good as Lugers, was still a good and tasty piece of meat (although expensive) The NY strip was possible the largeest one of its kind I have ever seen...charred on the outside and perfectly rare beneath. On par with the one I had at Keens imho. No good wine available, but Yvengling lager sufficed. Definetely going back.

As a side note, 4 doors down from Frinzi's on Butler was a place called "Sugar's Soul Food" with a caption that read "Indian and Southern Cuisine." Has anyone see or tried it? Looked very promising.
