After our meeting this morning (which went well, BTW), we had lunch at Jack Astor's before we headed back to Toronto.
Sammy greeted us at the door and opened it and then led us to our booth. She was extremely friendly while we were there and had a delightful English accent. Every restaurant should have a hostess like Sammy! That's what customer service is all about.
Our server was Dave. He was cool and kept calling Steve and Steve "Brother" ... for example, "Would you like some coffee, Brother?" He took good care of us.
Steve and I ordered Chicken Parmgiana (fresh chicken breast, lightly breaded and topped with smoked Mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce. Served with bowtie pasta, tossed in a creamy cheese sauce) ... it's what I always get at Jack Astor's. As always, it was delicious!
The other Steve ordered a Chicken Club Sandwich (a marinated, grilled fresh chicken breast with bacon, lettuce, tomato and smoked paprika mayo on focaccia) with a salad. It looked fun!
Definitely a good eating experience and I'd stop in again the next time I'm in London.
