Recently we went to Michael’s for an early dinner and I was primed for their Bourbon Medallions and that is what I ordered, along with a Baked Potato and a Salad of only greens with French Dressing. My husband thought it sounded good so he ordered the same meal, except his Salad would be with the works.
Our server didn’t write anything down, which always scares me. When she brought out the salads, mine was not what I ordered. I told the server I asked for only lettuce and she apologized and brought out the correct salad. The salads were fresh and the greens were crisp I’ll give them that!
When she approached the next time it was to tell us they didn’t have any more Beef Medallions. Well, it was turning out to be a disappointing visit. She said the cook suggested the sirloin steak and he would put the mushrooms and sauce on it. We decided to take that suggestion and asked for the meat to be cooked medium well.
There was entertainment that particular day. There were three flies that kept flying around the window sill where we were seated. I begged them to go bother someone else, but there was only two other customers at that time!
Finally, after a lengthy wait, the new version of Bourbon Medallions was served and it looked good…..are you expecting a but? BUT - It was well done and it certainly didn’t taste like the ‘real’ Bourbon Medallions that I’d enjoyed at other times. Since my husband never had the ‘real thing’ he said it tasted alright to him.
