Engine Co. No. 28 Dish Recs?
I'll be at Engine Co. No. 28 tomorrow night in Downtown LA. Any dishes of particular note to pay attention to?
We've eaten there quite a few times pre-theatre. I like it fine, it's not overly expensive, they make a decent cocktail, and their shuttle to the Music Center works reliably. However none of the dishes particularly stand out in my memory. I think my husband and I have shared their Caesar salad as a starter. Once I had a pretty good swordfish which IIRC was a special. It's the type of place where it's best to stick with the simpler dishes.
This is the brief review I wrote on Opentable the last time I went.
"we ordered dishes off the specials and were disappointed. The short ribs were lukewarm and flavorless. The fish dish was supposed to be halibut but was some other kind of fish. The rice that came with the dish was soggy and inedible. The lemonade was sold as "homemade" from fresh lemons but tasted like chemicals and too sweet. Will not be returning to Engine Co. anytime soon."
So, I'd order comfort food on the regular menu as others have suggested. Meatloaf is pretty good and probably your best bet.
