While I was sick, Dine LA started and ends tomorrow. Hurry, let’s go!
My girlfriend and I chose Connie & Ted’s in West Hollywood. This restaurant is owned and run by my favorite restauranteurs, Chef Michael Cimarusti & Maitre d’ Donato Poto.
I’ve been there only once for my birthday in 2013. They offer a really great deal for Dine LA. So…why not!?
It’s the first time for me to have Rhode Island chowder. All three are so different, but all flavorful. Different kind and cut of potatoes are used for each chowder.
I was debating between clam and oyster till last minute. Oyster wins. It was funny that our server says, “I don’t recommend the burger. That’s just for someone who can’t enjoy seafood, but this is a seafood restaurant.” Of course. My friend picked Cod Sandwich.
Although the sandwich tastes amazing, fries is a way too salty for me.
Suddenly, an incident happened. My friend found something in her chocolate ice cream. Mmmm, it was a piece of plastic. Oh no, it can’t be happening here! We told the server and he brought a new one.
When we almost forgot about it, it did happen again. Another piece was in there! I can’t believe it’s happening at my favorite chef’s restaurant. So disappointing!!!
The manager came out and apologized. They deducted one whole meal ($25) from the bill. He greeted us at the door and said, “We hope you will come back.” In mind, I replied, “I am not sure…”
I am too shocked to get over it yet.
