Monday Night Bargain

Returning from our trip to the East coast, My Beloved and I were not in the mood to cook that evening, so we strolled down to the Hotel Mac, a landmark in our little town of Point Richmond, to see if they would make dinner for us.

It was a Monday evening and we discovered that not only would they cook for us, they have bargain dinners on Mondays. Each entree was 15-50% less than it would have been any other night of the week. Needless to say, we stayed!

This picture represents less than half of the dinner they served to me. When the menu reads "Rack of Lamb," know that they serve each person an entire rack, plus greens and roast potatoes. Regularly $32.00, it costs $24.00 on Mondays.

We had ordered the potato cake you see here and a (huge) dish of mushrooms thinking that there were no veggies offered with the meal - when the full plates arrived, we asked the waiter to bring us a doggie bag even before we started eating - there was no way we could eat all we had ordered! Even without the extra side dishes, we'd have been pressed to finish the generous servings. We filled four doggie bags.

The Hotel Mac serves good, solid American food choices with some elegance, a nicely quiet atmosphere and attentive service. My Beloved and I plan to extend our weekends with Monday night dinners at the Hotel Mac from now on because it means that Tuesday night's dinner is covered, as well, and possibly lunch on Wednesday. If you're looking for a sumptuous dinner at a reasonable price, we can highly recommend the Hotel Mac Mondays!

Is the Baltic still around? I used to frequent it many moons ago.

What a great and delicious deal! I know some people decry the oversized portions many restaurants serve, but for me it always means an extra meal or two for the price of one.

I love the place because of the portions. Thanks for the tip about Mondays.

Chilebrown, no, sadly, still closed as it has been for many moons.

Kitt, good thinking!

Dagny, you're welcome. Enjoy!

Chilebrown, I spoke too soon! The Baltic does appear to be newly opened, perhaps just this week, in a new "English pub" theme for lunches and dinners! Closed Mondays. I peeked through the window and the bar is the same - hope they'll have the back patio open, too!
