Not to be confused with “Best Neighbour’s Restaurant” on Oak Street. This one is located on Victoria just off 49th. We came here to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The food and atmosphere is similar to Gigi’s (on Broadway) – much like home cooking serving pasta and meats.
I ordered the Classic Special which is a 6oz New York Steak served with garlic butter mushrooms, spaghetti with meat sauce, garlic toast and a side salad for $13.95. Pretty good deal!
The salad is your normal fare, with sliced tomatoes and celery. A good portion, I’m glad it wasn’t any bigger because my meal itself was fairly big.
Here’s my dish. A generous portion of spaghetti, big fluffy garlic toast and a steak buried underneath the mushrooms. I found the mushrooms a bit sour, it tasted a bit like they put a little balsamic vinegar in the seasoning. The spaghetti sauce was sweet and had a little bit of meat in it as well, a large portion. I wasn’t too impressed with the New York Steak, I ordered it medium, but it was very hard and chewy, it had a bit of a freezer burnt taste to it (or that ‘old’ taste meats seem to get after being out for too long). It was a long steak but had very little flavour to it.
Brian had the BBQ Chicken and Spaghetti ($16.95), he too agreed that the chicken was dry and had a freezer burnt taste to it as well.
The birthday boy had Cajun Chicken ($16.95), which is also served with spaghetti.
And another friend ordered Baked Lasagna ($13.95).
Our server brought out a slice of cake for the birthday boy at the end of our meal, Happy Birthday Will!
