Izzy's in San Carlos

Greg | Aug 27, 200402:01 AM

Prompted by a recent post three went to Izzy's - splitting a huge steak special and drunken shrimp. Since I've not eaten at the S.F. Izzy's, I cannot compare, but the place was jumping and the steak medium rare. The sides were not too exciting and the shoestrings certainly were a notch below Mickey D's. The drunken shrimp were actually the hit if the evening, juicy in a very spicy sauce with a mediteranian touch. A nice fruit crisp finished off the meal. A good steak but not a gourmet restaurant by any strech of the immagination. Wine list contained plenty of high quality but well priced bottles, though I brought a 93 Vosne Romanee proving that Mr. Tardy knows how to make a fine Burgundy.
