Last week was spent in Sarasota, helping out my grandparents… it was a LONG week and I was happy to return home. To help me detox, D. took me to Eddie Lee’s for dinner on Saturday. This was our first visit to this “Toledo Tradition”.
While we waited for our table (about 30 minutes), cocktails were enjoyed in the retro-decorated bar. Service from the bartenders was quick and pleasant, and before we knew it the host showed us to our table. A nice touch was the host carrying my drink for me while I could have easily done so myself.
We ordered a couple appetizers–escargot (which was nice, but should have come with some toasts… the bread on the table was too soft as an alternative) and some fried RED tomatoes (not green) served with a side of cocktail sauce.
Eddie Lee’s was packed with folks on the older side of the spectrum, and outside a couple babies we were easily the youngest diners. Still, the dining room was lively… some of those gray hairs could even be described as rowdy.
The highlight of the evening was my petit filet (yum) and the smaller portion of prime rib that D. absolutely loved. The prices are incredibly good; dare I say cheap? Both of our entrees were priced well under 20 bucks and our bill was close to half of a typical “nice” night out.
