Nicholas' new $29 bar menu

seal | Aug 8, 2010 04:15 PM

As usual I was eager to try something new, so when I read that Nicholas was offering a new bar menu I was first in line. The deal is that you can get a three course meal at the bar for $29, but they choose the courses for you. There is a different menu every day except Saturday.

The Sunday menu looked like my favorite so we were there at 5:30 tonight ready to eat. I was expecting smaller portions or something different from the usual courses, but I was pleasantly surprised. The first course tonight was a nice salad and it came in a huge bowl, same as when you order it in the main room.

The main course was the lobster with the crispy pork belly, which I absolutely love. Again it was a full portion and as wonderful as always. This was followed by the chocolate brownie sundae.

So, we didn't get an amuse bouche or a loaf of whatever to take home, but we ate as well as anyone tonight. With a nice glass of wine and a pre dinner drink, including tip we got out for about $100.

The full menu selections for each day are on the website at the end of the bar menu. I definately plan on sampling more of these bargains.
