Lunches with Dad – The Quaff and Caddy Shack

Ok guys, hang in there.  I am going backwards thru all the food pictures in my phone to get caught up.  Pardon me if details are a little sketchy.

A Dad pick we tried was The Quaff.  It is downtown on Broadway.  I honestly always thought it was a nightclub/bar establishment all these year I have driven by.  Turns out its a restaurant too!  My sister had mentioned it to my dad as a place to check out and off we went!

We have gotten into the habit of ordering appetizers when we are out just so we can sample more of the menu.  That day was no exception.  We ordered the nachos with beef on them.  They were plentiful and very tasty.  I would order them again as my meal.

Dad and I both had decided we wanted a french dip with fries so we both went for it.  Usually we try to order different things but not today.  French Dips were in our hearts.  We both enjoyed them.  They were hearty sandwiches with good fries.  I had to abandon the bread halfway thru so I could finish the meat, which was tasty.

Dad and I both enjoyed it with no regrets and I will definitely be back again.  In fact, I have tried to take Josh there a couple of times but both times they were closed due to holiday hours.  We will make it there when they are open one of these days!

Mid November we checked out Moretina’s Caddy Shack Pizza.  This was a choice of mine.  I was (and still am, lets be honest) going thru a pizza phase and took this recommendation from a friend.  She is one that when she makes a recommendation, you listen.

We both ordered side salads to start and they were your basic, run of the mill salads.  But lets be honest, theres not much to get excited about with side salads usually.  It’s something you get so you don’t feel like a total glutton when the pizza comes.    We ordered a pizza with (I believe) canadian bacon, pineapple, mushrooms and onions.  In the picture it looks smallish but I don’t remember it being so.  It had a great crust and the toppings were cut to a good size and had the right amounts.  I was told w

e should have tried it St Louis style with provel cheese but will have to do that next time, which I anticipate there being!  We both were happy and full when we left.
