Bake n’ Broil Halibut
In the past month, we have been seated, handed menus, and then walked out of a restaurant several times. Once, Scott and I were on a date and tried to go somewhere new, but when we got there and read the menu nothing looked good to us. So we walked out and went to our old standby, The Bowery, for wine and burgers.
The other occasions were because of Hayden. You all know he is a “good eater.” I mean, we don’t have to just rely on places that serve fries. But when we sit down at a casual, “kid-friendly” restaurant, read a menu full of chutneys, pork bellies, and foie gras, and ask our three year old what HE wants for dinner and he says FISH but there isn’t a discernible fillet on the menu? We leave.
The kid wants fish? I’ll make it at home. Bakin’ and broilin’ halibut is so easy, and you could probably feed your whole family with what it would cost to feed yourself at one of these fancy Slow Food New American Wannabe Foodie Places.
