You know a restaurant is bad when you show up a few drinks in, and find the food to be disgusting.
Wednesday night after consuming a few cocktails at the StyleFixx party, Caryn and several of our friends decided to find a place for dinner. Â Starving, we stumbled into the Limerick House, on 23rd and 8th, despite my requests for Shake Shack. Â I had my heart set on french onion soup, but knowing I’d probably still be hungry, I decided to split an appetizer sampler with Caryn. Â We all paired up and split samplers since it was a great deal Â – for $14, we were able to select any 4 appetizers off the menu and create our own sampler.
Caryn and I decided to go with chicken fingers, nachos, quesadillas and mozzarella sticks. Â All of it was pretty awful. Â We ate it, but I would have much preferred it if this food came from the frozen aisle at Costco. Â The chicken fingers weren’t chicken fingers but were more like chicken in a breading similar to the sweet and sour chicken you get at a Chinese restaurant. Â The honey mustard dipping sauce was good, but Caryn and I didn’t even touch the last finger. Â We had asked about the nachos before and should have known they’d be bad, since they mentioned it was canned cheese, but talk about lack of effort. Â There was nothing on these chips except cheese wiz, and a scoop of chunky salsa. Â The mozzarella sticks were okay, but were lacking the yummy seasoning and breading mozz sticks typically have. Â Like the chicken fingers, there was an awful lot of breading. Â Finally, the quesadilla just tasted off – it wasn’t real cheese, but more like a sauce of spices, salsa and cheese. Â And let’s face it, you know how much I need my dairy fix.
My advice: Â never step foot in Limerick House. Â Even my glass of tap water tasted poor.The Basics Name: Limerick House Location: 69 W 23rd Street (at 8th) Who to bring: No one because you are not going. Price: $$ Most dishes between $10-20 Overall: Â Disgusting. Â 0 stars.
