Sears Fine Food…since 1938. It is an institution. We were surprised to get a table on a Friday night without a reservation but we made it just before the line started out the door. The decor is vintage but not too dated.
We ordered the deviled egg appetizer. They were fine but we like a tad more mustard in ours. Daughter ordered the pot roast. It was a giant serving. The beef was tender and served over light, fluffy mashed potatoes and the gravy was rich and savory.
I ordered the Blue Moon burger. The burger was overcooked and dry. The tomatoes were mealy. The cheese was pungent and the onions were a nice addition.
Mother ordered the sole. Again a very generous portion. The lemon caper sauce was the right amount of citrus with the salty bite of caper. The batter was light and fluffy. Zucchini noodles? Not so yummy…a bit slimy. The parsley potatoes were cooked evenly and seasoned adequately.
For dessert we had to try the Swedish pancakes. They were awesome. We could’ve have eaten them all night. Cooked to perfection with a drizzle of lemon and sweet, warm butter and syrup. I wish we would have ordered them with the lingonberries!
