Food, there it is!!

Once upon a time, a good friend, along with Poker chick and Poker husband, wrote up a plan for the ideal restaurant. Since this restaurant does not yet exist, we did the next best thing: evaluate every place we did eat at. The criteria for how well we liked a place depended on how well it performed on the following foods:
  1. French onion soup
  2. Crab cakes
  3. Fresh guacamole made to order
  4. Chicken and steak fajitas (not either or, just that specific combo)
  5. Fresh warm crusty bread with butter that is spreadable, but not melty
  6. Macaroni and cheese. Mmmm.....cheese.
  7. Fries. Crisp on the outside, warm, and nice and salty.
  8. No salad (you don't make friends with salad)
  9. Sliders (this gives a place bonus points)
  10. Key lime pie.
  11. Donuts. They could be fancy donuts, but still - donuts.
  12. Only the following liquor: Belvedere vodka, margaritas with at least 20 different tequila options, and Veuve Cliquot champagne. Good bubbly is important.

If anyone knows a restaurant in New York that has all these things (or a lot of them), let us know. In the meantime, today we wish this friend a happy birthday!!

Makes me think of...

Homer: Are you saying you're never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Ham?
Lisa: No.
Homer: Pork chops?
Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal.
Homer: Heh heh heh. Ooh, yeah, right, Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.
