What Bri's Cooking

I have a lifelong love affair with food. It may very-well be an unhealthy love affair. So?! I eat, ask, wonder, talk, think, sample and read about food, recipes and cooking so much that I figured, why not create a blog?!

Arnold’s food review. 

I have been trying to stop eating crapity crap for lunch, so I looked up Arnold’s menu and was intrigued by the Sicilian Linguine.  It seemed light and simple enough to be a perfect lunch.  I rarely get a second to leave my office for lunch these days, so I was happy to take a walk around the corner to place a carryout order. 

I didn’t look at the food before I left and this is a mistake I often regret.  So once I get back to the office I look at my food and am a little saddened by what I see.  I figured that there would be a better sauce to pasta ratio or a better pasta to veggie ratio or just something.  Once I started eating, I just found something to be missing from this dish.  What does Arnold’s have against spice?!   I believe how a restaurant handles a simple dish is the key to pleasing their customers and ensuring they come back.  This pasta just didn’t do it for me.  I hate to think that this place is simply a good bar, but this is the third meal I’ve eaten there, so I think third strike they’re out.  Sucks though, I really wanted to enjoy this. 

Low down:  I’d give the food a D for being too bland to finish.  The bread was pretty good, though.  Maybe I should’ve just got a burger?
