Rack of Lamb - What would you do

jfood | Dec 31, 2006 12:40 AM

Large group (13) at an upscale resto in FL. Three of us ordered racks of lamb (2 - med-rare; one - rare). All came well-done. These were full racks, about seven bones served as an uncut unit. One in our party did not care and the other two of us sent back. Five minutes later the waitress brought out a new set of lamb, this time, the rack was cut into individual chops, each coated on all sides with the broed crumbs and then sauteed. So the end result was similar to a breaded/fried veal chop.

Choice was

1 - send back for the original presentation of a "3rd" try
2 - choose a different entree that can be quickly served
3 - call it a night on the entree and order dessert

What would people do?
