thanks to my mom’s work, we got to eat at the infamous Club 33 at lunch today. yes, without a doubt it’s really nice, but i was mostly unimpressed with their main courses, although their unlimited lunchtime appetizer and dessert buffets were quite scrumptious! at $80 per person, it fell short of expectations of what that should buy, but at least i can say i’ve been.
An exact replica of an elevator Walt fell in love with in Paris (and dad's reflection)
First round at the appetizer buffet
Chateaubriand -- overcooked (i asked for medium-rare; it came out medium-well; dad had same experience). The sauce, however, was perfection.
Round one at the dessert bar, crème brûlée not shown
and now some not-so-instagram pictures (which may take some time to load in the viewer; they’re quite large):
Lunch menu (it's prix-fixe for AYCE apps and dessert and one main course). While I didn't care for my chateaubriand, Dad enjoyed his, mom said she'd had better sea bass elsewhere, and my brother loved his lamb.
Second round of appetizers
My mom mentioned to the server that we were celebrating the engagement of my brother and his fiancée and look what they surprised them with for dessert (it was chocolate-covered mousse; the Minnie ears are raspberry halves)!
