It was the "Vampire Chaser" that did it. After reading the reviews here, we decided to go to the New England House for our 10 year anniversary. We didn't get to sit in the room with the fireplace, but it was exactly what we were hoping. We started with the "Vampire Chaser" - garlic and brie on french bread. Oh my goodness. Unbelievably good. Then we had salads, which were delicious and had not a sprig of iceberg lettuce.
For entrees, I got the melt-in-your-mouth crabcakes. I'm from Baltimore, so I'm picky about crabcakes. These could have used some Old Bay, but they weren't advertised as "Maryland Crabcakes," so I'll forgive them. The garlic mashed potatoes were perfect - I didn't even need to add a drop of butter or grain of salt. The portions were very large - I'm a small person and light eater and I got 2 whole meals out of it. My partner ate all of his dinner (steak tips & mashed potatoes) and was stuffed, and he eats like he's still 15 years old. The most surprising thing was the coleslaw. I like coleslaw, even the bland mayonnaisey kinds. When the waitress said it was a no-mayo coleslaw, I was dubious, but oh my goodness, that is seriously the BEST coleslaw I've ever had anywhere ever.
We spent more than we normally would, but it was for our 10 year anniversary. For an appetizer, 2 dinners, 2 glasses of wine and a side salad (one was included with my partner's meal) we spent a little over $70, including tip.
