For "F Night" we visited the French Laundry in Fenton. We'd been wanting to go there for quite some time, and this was our excuse. The French Laundry is trendy and upscale, but casual.
We made it in time to use the extensive lunch menu and save a few bucks. I ordered a side salad of mixed greens. It was HUGE and contained all kinds of veggies. However, I was only given a small container of bleu cheese dressing. I normally don't use much, but this was about half of what I needed. My entree was macaroni and cheese, made with Grafton Vermont Cheddar, for $6.95. It was good, but needed garnishment. It didn't even show up in the picture below left!
Gary's turkey meatloaf dinner came with red skins. The meatloaf was studded with vegetables, such as zucchini, and cheese, which wasn't noticeable. He didn't care for the meatloaf, as it was too salty and seemed to be more breadcrumbs than ground turkey. His side salad was included in the $10.50 price. Dinner prices after 4:00 are higher.
Our entire bill, before tip, was $28.40. We enjoyed the comfortable decor. Every formica table was different, with four unmatched chairs around it. A fresh flower was on each table. Many people at neighboring tables had ordered the huge sandwiches, but I'm not a fan of a huge sandwich that is difficult to eat. We probably won't return, but enjoyed trying it out this time.
I'm a high school parapro and spend most of my workday helping kids plan their beyond high school careers. Before that, I taught reading to early elementary students for twenty years. I decided to write this blog showcasing my love of restaurants, the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan, flowers, birds, wildlife and more--sometimes connecting them all!
