So last Sunday night, Valentine's Day, Joe and I went to Rooney's for dinner with friends. There was a fixed price four-course menu. Sometimes when there's a special menu at a restaurant, choices are limited. That was not the case at Rooney's. There were six to ten choices in each category - appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert. Everything was delicious. Three of us had filet mignon, and one had the sea bass. Each course was generous; sometimes with special menus, they amount of food served can be kind of stingy. Not the case here. There was the right amount of food served in each course. And, the service hit the standard for which Rooney's is known. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, personable, and each course arrived and was cleared in a timely manner.
Rooney's was pricey, that's for sure, but for a special occasion, it can't be beat. Romantic, kind of European in its atmosphere, it's a place to share with the one you love.
Tonight, it's Max at Eastman Place. I'll let you know how it stacks up.
