On friday night, Jennifer and I went to a restaurant significantly out of our price range, because someone had re-gifted us a gift certificate. So we found ourselves at Seven in Peoria Heights.
Anyway, I was settled on the Steak Diane when the waiter started in with the specials. One of the specials was grilled Buffalo. It wasn't cheap, but I've always wanted to try Buffalo. So I ordered it.
It was not good. It wasn't the preperation. Seven is a great restaurant. It was the Buffalo. I had it cooked medium rare and it was still just so tough and chewy, that I didn't finish it. (I can't remember the last time that I went into a restaurant for dinner and didn't finish the meal because I didn't like it.)
So anyway, Jennifer asked me if I regretted not getting the Steak Diane. I said 'no' because even though it wasn't good, I got to try something I've always wanted to try. But on the other hand...I wish I would have had a good meal at a restaurant that I may never be able to afford again!
What do you think...would you have played it safe and stuck with the beef, or would you have gone with the Buffalo?
