Chestnut Last Night

abu applesauce | Feb 1, 2007 07:16 AM

First time in Chestnut last night. My dining companion's food was great, mine was not so great. I seemed to order the wrong things.
Appetizer--I had haystack shrimp. Kind of tasted like shrimp flavored potato chips. Was so fried, I didn't really taste the shrimp. My brother had the grilled calamrari, which was absolutely fantastic. Maybe I just don't care for haystack shrimp, and should have ordered s/thing else. Next time I would definitely tget calamari or something else
Entree--Hangar steak. Pretty dry and dissapointing. I could swear the waiter (who was very friendly and helpful) said they recommend medium-rare, but is it possible he said medium-well? Bc steak was pretty dry. My bro had the stuffed pork--delicious.
Dessert--I had Ice creams--excellent.
Overall--I need to go back and order different items.
