This year’s Thanksgiving, we decided to venture on dining at a fine diner – McCormick & Schmicks at downtown Minneapolis. I like that restaurant a lot because I like eating seafood. I work downtown, so I would dine there every now and then. It has pretty good seafood dishes.
Initially, I was afraid of bringing our kids to dine there. You know our kids. They are wild and have no table manners. I decided to take a quantum leap of faith and gave it a try. I was pleasantly surprised that our kids behaved surpassingly well. The food was great. It offered not only the traditional turkey meal but the regular entrees, which I preferred. My son ordered the chicken tenders and my daughter ordered Macaroni and Cheese. To my amazement, the kids’ dishes were exceptionally inexpensive and prepared with great details and efforts. With only $4.99, it was unlike any kids’ meal I have ever seen. They were succulently delicious.
I ordered the perfect combination with shrimp and salmon. My husband had chef George’s recommendation of wild opah from Catalina Island of Southern California.
I am glad that we went to that restaurant for our unconventional Thanksgiving meal.
This is the website to my favorite restaurant.
By the way, this is a picture we took at the IDS building after finishing our Thanksgiving lunch.
