We had a chance to revisit the Depot, which I often call Home Depot, cuz it feels really comfortable with it’s family air and trains rambling through every so often. Coming from Chicago, one of the big train cities of this great country, I love to watch the trains go by and request the window seats whenever possible. so I can get the best rumble.
The food we ate was pretty darn good and the new management has changed the menu since we were last there. Being located a couple of block’s from the former and beloved Monte’s Steak House, one has to think that the Depot must have something to write home about if they survived not only Monte’s, but also the Boston Pizza restaurant right down the street. While we have visited the Boston Gourmet Pizza location, we did not feel a need to blog about it.
I had the Cancun Seafood with lobster sauce and shrimp, salsa, a large amount of sour cream and lettuce and a bean, corn and tomato salad. D had the Chicken Carbonara with bow tie pasta, onions, bacon and peas which was hugely creamy deliciosio. We had iced tea with lemon. We skipped dessert. Too full.
The prices creep up and the waitress practically lept into my husband’s lap, but besides that, it was pretty good. A nice place for a family party.
