Don't order a Bloody Mary or the Pastrami
If you want a good Bloody Mary, DON?T order one at the Old Capital Grill in Golden. When I asked our waitress how they were, she said great. Apparently she has never had a Bloody Mary?it was thin, weak, watery, pale, anemic looking even! The celery salt was overpowering. I had to fish the olive out with my fork, as well as the huge piece of tough celery that was 2 inches shorter than the glass.
If you order the Pastrami sandwich, ask for it grilled so you have half a chance of picking it up. The bread was too thin for the amount of meat heaped in a big ball in the center, then the sandwich was cut on the diagonal. The meat had apparently been grilled, and lost all of its tenderness and flavor, and be prepared to reassemble it before you attempt picking it up so you can get some meat out to the edges. This would have been horrible had I not asked to have swiss cheese added, which I?m sure they charged extra for.
I would have sent back the drink and the sandwich had our waitress bothered to come by after each was delivered to check on us, but by the time she cruised back we were nearly finish (uh, I mean fed up?).
My husband and I go out to lunch every Saturday and Sunday, supporting our local restaurants through these hard times, but we won?t be going back to the Old Capital Grill in Golden.
P.S. if you want a great Bloody Mary, go to Ruby Tuesday on Wadsworth in Arvada just north of I-70. You will say WOW with every sip.
