KC Prime and New Years Eve

Happy New Year to my allergic (and non-allergic) readers! My new year's eve was delightful and a perfect way to begin working my way back into blogging world. New Year's Eve is usually very difficult for myself and other allergic patrons because restaurants make special menus. For that reason, we usually don't do a lot for the occassion. This year we decided it was time for a change. I went with NAH to KC Prime, a steakhouse in central NJ that we've been to several times before. However, as we were starting off the new year, I wanted to order something different. I've never had vegetables there (as their salad comes complete with a tomato - ack! - vinaigrette. When we settled in to our table, I informed our waitress of my allergies (mea culpa, didn't call ahead), and she told me that due to the holiday there would be many people covering our table tonight, but she hoped for the best. To my pleasant surprise (I get very nervous when waiters "hope"), I was able to have the evening's special (bone-in filet), minus the port-wine demi glaze, a full plate of steamed seasonal veggies (the squash and carrots were delish!) and a baked potato. I wasn't the only one thrilled with my meal, as NAH had soup, my salad, and a gigantic prime rib. Everything was done to perfection and beautifully allergy-free. Our meal made for a fantastic start to the new year! Our resolution is to dine out a whole lot more, so there'll be plenty of postings for you!

Wishing you the best of everything in 2008! Looking forward to talking with you this year,
Sincerely,
Your (well-fed) Allergic Diner.

NAH here. What TAD forgot to mention is that she also tempted fate by indulging in a pink lemonade martini. Let's just say it's a good thing that NAH agreed to be the designated driver . . . :)
