A Legendary Evening

A torrential early spring rainstorm could not derail us hearty New Englanders from a very special affair. The grand opening of the newest Texas Roadhouse restaurant in Waterbury, Connecticut – A Legendary Evening filled with great friends, delicious food and a fun time for all involved. In fact, Connecticut’ who’s who are in attendance from State Officials, Senators, Congressmen, athletes, actors and even me- Howard Steven Frydman- food reviewer, television producer and elected politician at the Grand Opening.

So what did I have to eat? Everything!!! Wayne points to the menu and says ” Howard Go to Town”!!! So here is what I sampled- are ya ready???

Firstly, Texas Roadhouse team members pass from table to table an array of delicious appetizers including: onion blossoms, fried pickles, tater skins, grilled shrimps, and their famous “Killer Ribs”– omg – I am stuffed already!! My selection included a side salad, no tomatoes ( I’m allergic to them remember) served on the side with honey mustard dressing. My main entree- Porterhouse T-bone- a filet and New York Strip prepared medium served with sautéed mushrooms and a side of  freshly made mash potatoes. Even though I know there are new chefs at the helm- my steak is masterfully prepared!!! Yum!!

I have had a great time at this outstanding 5 star event!!!! The folks at Texas Roadhouse sure know how to put out a Texas Sized welcome mat- “Howdy” !!!! I came away with a great dining experience and even some Texas Roadhouse Trivia- their mascot is Andy the Armadillo, team members can wear caps or cowboy hats and no soup is served only award winning chilli–Thank you Texas Roadhouse- thank you for making Connecticut your home!! And remember- “I’ll be back”!! Yum!!
