$12 dinner specials at Town's End

Town's End has had a dinner special going on for quite a while now - since the Dine Around Town promotion? Currently they are calling it their 12th Anniversary - $12 - 3 course dinner special: soup or house salad, main course and dessert. On Tuesday nights you can choose any pasta, fish or meat dish for your main course. On the other nights there is a more limited selection - I think it's 4 or 5 dishes to choose from for your main course. I started off with a simple house salad with a few croutons - nice mixed greens dressed with a vinaigrette (sherry?). For a $2 supplement, my wife and friends went for the fancier salad that had sliced peaches and crumbled bleu cheese along with walntus - they were all very happy with this. The soup of the night was a tomato and white corn but we didn't try it.The bread basket warrants a special mention - a very good assortment of baked goods to sample: bread sticks, focaccia, walnut bread, corn bread, poppy seed roll, etc...... Main course - I had the ribeye steak with mashed potatoes and green beans/carrots. The steak was done med-rare as requested - good flavor and properly cooked. Not melt in your mouth tender but that would be expecting a lot for this price. The mashed potatoes had a few lumps in them (from real potatoes) and weren't overly rich - a good accompaniment to the beef. Veggies were well seasoned & tasty. All the other folks went for the crab cakes - each order came with 3 nice size cakes - good flavor - texture a bit smooth for my taste from bread crumbs? they came with a nice mango relish/salsa that gave it a nice sparkle. there was also a little bit of mixed salad greens on the plate with the crab cakes. For dessert - the lemon meringue pie is a good choice - Janice thought it could be a bit more tart but it was just about right for me. I had the four berry trife - pretty rich concoction of mixed berries, pastry cream and cake - along with caramel whipped cream. There was also a rich chocolate mousse for dessert. All in all a great value - a nice dinner for $12 - we left a nice tip and then took a walk along the embarcadero - watching the fog roll in. Town's End. Embarcadero & Townsend Streets. 2 blocks from Pac Bell park. (215) 512-0749 We didn't have any trouble getting an earlly reservation - 6 or 6:30pm but by 7pm they were full and there was a line of folks waiting to dine as we were done.
