"A new restaurant opened in the two-story, glass-enclosed space at 100 E. 20th St. that housed Paddy O’Quigley’s until that bar closed in mid-2008. "The Prime Rib Grill by Hereford House, a new concept by the famed Kansas City steakhouse chain, opened quietly three weeks ago.""
I'm leery of anything The Hereford House folks attempt. I've had so many bad meals there I've learned to stay away. Look how they
"More about the prime rib: This juicy cut of beef is served up eight ways at the Prime Rib Grill. We tried – but failed – to polish off the loaded version ($22.95), piled high with mushrooms, onions, artichokes, peppers and bacon bound up in melty mozzarella. The meat, brined for 28 hours in root beer, brown sugar, mustard, garlic and other secret ingredients, explodes with flavor, but the slab is almost too much for one person to finish,"
WTF? This reminds me of the Scattered, smothered, covered, chunked, topped and diced hash browns at the Waffle House! It's brined in rootbeer? Wait.... what? Don't f*ck with the meat! Age mine and pass the salt and pepper. I'm guessing you won't see me there.
Update: I just looked at their menu. Can I have a surf-and-turf with the barbecued scallops and the batter fried prime rib?
