RW at District Chophouse & Brewery: skimpy choices

Sal Monella | Jan 11, 2006 11:48 AM

I've done RW several times now & the choices I was offered yesterday were the most limited I've ever had.

The website didn't list the RW menu - I took it for granted it would be choices from all the entrees at the very least. I know I should have called, but I got busy at work. I didn't reserve as I usually sit at the bar of a RW restaurant after 1:45. Service was OK, tho a bit slow even tho the bar area was pretty empty at that time.

Chophouse only had TWO, count 'em, 2, choices for each course:

Appetizer: calamari (normal price $9) or ??
Entree: grilled salmon on cedar plank (normal price $13) or tenderloin tips with mushrooms
(with choice of rice, fries or mashed potatoes)
Dessert: chocolate mousse or apple caramel pie

The menu on the website I thought had said all full entrees (not sandwiches) come with chopped salad, but that was not the case yesterday (the manu at the table did not mention that). However, I did get served a sizeable pan of cornbread.

The calamari (drizzled with a wasabi cream) was the best thing about the lunch. The tenderloin & potatoes were OK (normal price $12), as was the pie.

But I've had better taste experiences and much more choice at many other RW restaurants.

However, Chophouse has a good selection of in-house brews (tho I didn't partake, to keep my lunch costs down) At happy hour, 2 different brews a day are discounted (at the bar only, not in the restaurant).
