Cheap Food in Expensive Restaurants
I think this topic may have been covered before. If so, I apologize. Anyways, what are some of your favorite "steals" at a fancy restaurant? Could be a weekly special where something is half off or just a generous portion of something amazing for not very much money. This occurred to me as a good topic last night when I went to Sushi Robata. For $5.75 you can get a steamed red snapper head (they have grilled too but the steamed is better). Even if you don't like eating the eye, it's a tremendous amount of amazing fish for very cheap. You could get that and a bowl of rice and have a very satisfying meal.
With your reference to Sushi Robata, I'd be a bit squeamish when it came to eating the eyes but, there are parts of the head I do enjoy such as the cheeks which are some of the tastiest parts of a fish.
However, that said, I wouldn't want to dine at Sushi Robata and eat like a peasant.
I'm curious now to hear from others here about their (cheaper) eating experiences at restaurants that are somewhat expensive.
A dish that can be truly outstanding is the lobster mac and cheese at Capital Grill. I don't remember exactly how much, $14-16? But when it's good, I consider it a bargain.
