There was a diversity of opinion where to go for our January Chowhound get together in Reno. I'm still looking for the perfect Mexican place, although we might have to do a taco run and sample the food at three or more places along Kietzke Lane/Neil Road.
So we're going to try a Wednesday night get together at Coney Island Bar at the intersection of Galletti Way and East Fourth Street. The Coney Island Bar serves lunch Monday through Saturday and on Wednesday nights they have dinners by reservation only.
The question is, which night to chose. Email your vote to me. The choices:
Jan 7: Mushroom barley soup, roasted garlic tri tip, ravioli formaggio with tomato prosiutto sauce.
Jan. 14: Minestrone, chicken picatta (sauteed breasts in a lemon caper sauce) and risotto
Jan. 21: Zuppa di rossa, pork sirloin chops with tomato goronzola sauce and gnocchi
Jan. 28: Mama Marie's soup; braised rosemary lamb shanks; polenta
The cost is $17 each plus drinks and a tip. If it's a big group, I need to make reservations a week in advance.
They have dinners twice on Wednesday, at 6 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. The only one I'll be able to attend is at 7:45.
