Bread with dinner?

kengk | Mar 25, 2012 04:07 AM

We tried a new restaurant last night. Not what I would term a fine dining type establishment but fairly upscale. They purport to serve "Contemporary Southern Cuisine" and I wouldn't disagree with that description based on the menu. Most entrees are in the $24-30 range which is fairly expensive for this area.

I was astounded by the fact that they did not serve bread. I like bread with my dinner. Most places serve bread.

Now, we do go to a couple of places that require you to order bread separately if you want it and it is at least better than the "free" bread that some places serve.

We both had a wedge salad (not a cracker or crouton here either), my wife had a steak and mashed potatoes and I had lamb chops with roasted potatoes. Add a couple of glasses of wine and dessert and the check was just over a hundred dollars.

When we realized bread was not forthcoming we looked around and saw that nobody else had any either so it was not just an oversight.

So, to sum up the long post. WTF is up with that? Should I have asked if they had a crust of bread in back that they might be willing to share with us?
