|Here's the WB from the parking lot. Nothing too fancy, pretty funky, but I was pumped.|
|Here's a picture of the bar from my seat. It was super dark in there and really felt cave-like. But nice. It had a real 70's vibe to it, which I found comforting and nice.|
|I ordered a bloody mary (two, actually). They were good and spicy, traditional. Nothing too fancy, save the dill bean which was tasty.|
|Here's a closer shot of the sandwich itself. You can tell that it has standard bread and a good amount of beef. The beef was nice and supple.|
The sandwich itself was small and "classic" but that's fine. They don't have to be over the top to be great. As for the beef, it was good, soft and tasty but did not have an overly distinct beef flavor. There was also a little fat in there but I don't mind. That must means it is authentic prime rib.
The creamy, spicy Beaver horseradish on the side was a hit with me this day and gave you that big nasal hit that is so fun.
This meal also came with a salad that had very cold lettuce, which was a major plus. Tim had told me to get bacon bits on the salad and I forgot, which resulted in cheeze-its and salami, which is their default. It was a simple salad and there was evidence of other herbs on the simple salad, making it fancier than "just iceberg".
|Here's the salad, which was quite good. Cold lettuce goes a long way in my book. I score it a 4 for its creativity and value.|
Beirut no no no was playing on the radio. I got my French dip comfort food fix on a Sunday and two Bloody Mary's to straighten out my mood and outlook.
So circling back to the party at Greg's, I am greatful that I was introduced to Wedgwood Broiler from Tim and others. Tim takes this place seriously and I verified that their three French dip varieties and their Prime Rib Dip in particular are solid units. The place is cool, old, swanky and comfortable and I felt at home.
