Anyway, it was a small steak, but in this state I've never had one that tender and perfectly prepared. And it came with a stack of scalloped potatoes that were browned just right on the top. They serve beer in 6oz sample sizes and 16oz pints, we had a few samples in front of us
The place had an incredibly rustic look and feel to it (door frame molding made of logs, rusty bar counter though clearly sealed for hygiene reasons. The windows were open with a nice breeze rolling through. The whole thing was pretty awesome.
Ahh, that sounds so nice! I liked how you described the ambience as important, too, thanks for sharing!
@ quackbuster, I live near a Melt & now I have to get my butt over to one & experience this myself, I never got around to it before, shame on me! And to think a grilled cheese is one of my favorite things to eat!
@ SMichelle, what a memory to have, lucky you! I don't know why, but it was slightly amusing to me to hear about the fabulous Italian dinner you had in Scotland, not the fabulous Scottish meal. But really, why it would be any different than having Italian in the States, I don't know. I just chuckled anyway, probably because it was unexpected once I saw the word Scotland.
