Members and non-members, guests and soon to be guests, would you enjoy Club 33 more and eat there more often if they served food similar to Ruth's Chris, The Smoke House, The Musso and Frank Gill, Lawry's, Tam O'Shanter, The Five Crowns, Mortons, and so on?
After our recent dinner at Club 33, I honestly have no desire to go back, at least to eat in the main dinning room. The appetizers in the jazz lounge are much more enjoyable.
What's your opinion?
With the addition of the large commercial kitchen, there is certainly room to increase the offerings , sure, they can continue to offer the usual fancied French cuisine, but I feel that many would truly enjoy a more Americanized offering. I won't go into great detail here as my feelings are quite obvious and I'm not here to convince or sway anyone towards my way of thinking.
I sure would enjoy a nice steak or prime rib served within the club. I'm not one to buy into small portions stacked neatly upon an over-sized plate, described using words such as 'deconstructed', 'tasting', 'essence', or 'sampling'.
Somewhat reminds of Monty Python's 'Life of Brian' and the Roman Colosseum scene with the food vendor. "Lark's tognues. Otter's noses. Ocelot's spleens."
Imagine a filet like this served at the club!
