Zon's, and a huge Michael's sandwich

Joanie | Jan 18, 200805:30 AM

Ate at the bar of Zon's last nite, we were the only 2 people there at 6:15 but eventually about 15 others showed up. Very pleasant nite but wasn't knocked out by the food. The bread didn't seem super fresh, the appetizers aren't the most exciting so we went with mussels which were tasty in a garlicky broth, but the crostini was hard and quite a few mussels didn't open. We split the famous mac & cheese but I hate to say, I like the work cafeteria's better (and it's almost as big a portion for $1.50 vs. $13). It came to us super hot but seemed to coagulate quickly and there was an odd taste to it. Salt helped but it just was a little too solid for my taste. We split a half portion of the ice cream sandwich which was a basic choc. chip cookie w/ vanilla ice cream last nite and that was enough to fill us up. I had a glass of pinot blanc for $6 and he had a couple of the Zon's brews for $4 each. The woman bartending was great and it's a friendly scene (and super dark) but I'll choose the meat loaf or salmon next time.

After all the talk about Michael's, I figured I'd grab something to go from there on Wed. I'm getting 3.5 meals out of this thing. Got the chicken salad club on a bulkie ($6.99) and it was ridiculously huge. A half sandwich, some chips and a pickle made for a good dinner. I scraped off some chick sal on each half and made one sandwich on an English muffin for the next day, saved the other half for today, and have a tiny bit to put on top of some salad or something. I know that's not the way everyone eats, but that was an insane sandwich.
