Bad Albert's--RIP and Post-Mortem
I noticed yesterday that this venerable (18 years) place is closed and for sale. There is an explanatory note on the door, noting the owner's health problems as a contributing cause.
I really enjoyed Bad Albert's. Their Friday night prime rib dinners were always great, and their pubfood menu was consistently good. I probably had everything on the menu, and they didn't fumble anything, ever. The servers were well-trained and friendly. The only complaint I ever had about the place was the uncomfortable high stools at the tall tables. This was the way, IMO, that neighborhood places ought to be, food-, drink-, and atmo-wise.
The owner once shared with me his recipe for Biscuits & Crab Gravy, a delightful preparation, that I regularly make for brunches and out-of-towners. I'll always remember the owner's generosity in this regard, as well as many, many fine meals at Bad Albert's.
Get Well Soon, RIP Bad Albert's, and Thanks!
