Strip T's lunch - what did I miss?

Science Chick | Dec 29, 2013 11:27 AM

I hope I am not put through the wringer for this posting, but I am wondering what happened…

I've had Strip T's on my list for a while now, and DH and I stopped in yesterday for lunch. I had the much lauded cauliflower sammie,and DH had the fish sandwich. We also ordered sweet potato fries and a side caesar salad. We were bitterly disappointed. The sandwiches were literally just *dripping* with grease every bite. The fish was nice and fresh and well prepared, and the hint of spicy pickled green tomato was lovely, but the sauce/grease factor just ruined it. I couldn't really taste anything in the cauliflower sandwich except grease and greens from the broccoli rabe. I left half and didn't even take it home. The salad was likewise just swimming in an overly acidic dressing. Fries were acceptable with a great aioli dip.

Did we order wrong? Is this a misfire of the kitchen, right after the holidays? I know this place has been the darling of the boards of late, and I don't want to do them wrong, but we really were bummed out!
