I've been going to the Cav for as long as I've been in Laramie, over three years. I go there at LEAST once a year, always around this time, and I've never, ever EVER been disappointed. Exactly a year ago I had the most amazing pork loin of my life. Six months before that I had elk for the first time ever. I've always had amazingly good food there.
But tonight was a first. I ordered prime rib, medium as was recommended, with a side of sweet mashed potatoes. I figured, I love sweet potato fries, so I would likely enjoy the mash. Wrong. It was WAY too sweet - I'm guessing they added sugar to it. They apparently added some sugar to my boyfriend's risotto as well....
Also, I don't like steak rare, and my steak was definitely med-rare. To be fair, I was warned that the prime rib runs on the rare side. But I always order med-well, except when it's recommended otherwise. My stomach is slightly unsettled at the moment and I'm worried it was the steak.
I'm guessing the usual chefs that I've enjoyed so much were not there tonight, and maybe aren't there anymore at all.
It's such a damn shame. Everything we've ever had there has been spectacular. Even the Caesar salad used to be amazing. Maybe it was a sign that when we arrived, there was only one other couple there, and no one else came the whole time we were there.
I'm just so depressed. My yearly highlight is dead. I don't know if I want to return again.
