The Jamin & Karen Supper Club: The Longfellow Grill

So we decided to give the Longfellow Grill another try this week, and this time the wait was only 15 minutes.  Well, really it was more like 25 when all was said and done, but we waited around for it, and i think it's fair to say that it was worth it.

Karen got the Walleye Benedict, which is what i got the last time we were here years ago.  I got the Stuffed Chicken, which is an understated name for something that falls squarely into the category of "fabulous!" with a lilt.  A breaded chicken cutlet rolled up around roasted red peppers and some sort of boursin creamy sherry cheesy lovely paste that goes straight into your arteries from your mouth.

My drink, on the other hand, the Blackberry Margarita, kinda sucked.  I mean, it didn't suck badly enough that i didn't drink it, but it was sour, bitter, and had little-to-nothing to do with blackberries other than it was slightly purple and it had one floating in it.  It was mostly lime juice from sub-par limes and some sort of low-shelf tequila.  The glass was also rimmed with salt, which seemed odd to me for a fruit margarita, and just added to the bitterness.  Anyway, I can't complain too much, because we arrived just short of the end of happy hour, so it was $3 off.

But that chicken.  Damn.  Yum.
