One of my most favorite restaurants in St. Louis is called The Stable. Ever since I first wrote about this a few years back, I personally have known as many as 50 people who started to go there. Not all of them are foodies but just people who wanted to get a good meal. Now, this Saturday my family is going to throw my grandmother a party and if I am not mistaken, she is turning 88. I decided to take her and my father as well as the rest of my family to The Stable for brunch. What occurred once we entered the door may have been one long string of not-so-great events that culminated with a bad feel and an apology from the waiter.
Now, we did The Stable because I looked at their brunch items, which looked reasonable. We arrived, were seated quickly because of our reservation and waited for about 15 minutes before our drink order was taken. About 5 minutes later we got or drinks. After our drinks came, it too the waiter no less than 1 hour to come to take our food order. My grandmother ordered the Elvis toast, my father ordered the Cajun biscuits and gravy, my wife and I both ordered the Bauernfruhstuck and we got the Farmer's breakfast for the two kids to split.
This is where things started to go wrong:
The Bauernfruhstuck, was steak, grilled onions and peppers, hash browns, eggs, toast and bacon.
My kids had their food as well, which was also cold.
