Eat Like Kings In Queens!

Queens Restaurant Week 2008!

Manhattan has it's restaurant week and so does Queens! The 3rd annual restaurant week in Queens runs from September 22-26th, 2008. The event is sponsored by Discover Queens of the Queens Economic Development Corporation. The participating restaurants will offer a 3 course lunch ($25) and dinner ($35). Selected restaurant will be offering a two for $25 or two for $35 on special menus. Check out more details of the participating restaurants from Discover Queens.

Today we went to Woodhaven House, a participating restaurant for Queens Restaurant week, for brunch. Andy and I went there a few times, the food is pretty good and another reason we decided to go there is because we had a coupon! There was a promotion a while ago which was 80% off so we got a $25 coupon for $2! We brought a few coupons and Woodhaven House was one of them. The brunch menu is from open until 3pm on Sundays. It's a Irish pub/restaurant, it's so lively in there and we always see lots of people drinking at the bar and watching sports in morning!
So we had to order $35 min worth of food in order to use the coupon so this is what we ordered:

We started off with a Mimosa, a cocktail like drink composed of champagne or sparkling wine and Orange juice (comes with any brunch order, other drinks available):

Classic Eggs Benedict Canadian Bacon, English Muffin & Hollandaise ($10)-it was very good, the dish came out nice and hot. The English muffin toasted and crispy. I was glad that the ham wasn't dry and chewy like the first time I had it a another diner. The potato were freshly made and seasoned really well.

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad Shaved Parmesan & Herb Croutons ($12)-the chicken was kind of dry but the salad was good. The portion was huge, I was so full from eating 1/2 of it!

Belgium Waffles du Jour Fresh Cream ($9)-the syrup was warm, the fruits were sweet, the waffles was warm and crispy. It was good but it wasn't like the real Belgium-melt in the mouth waffles... yes I know, I was spoiled after eating real Belgium waffles!

We were so full but we still had to order more food because it wasn't enough to use our coupon so we order a chocolate cake with white chocolate moose ($6) to go and ate it after dinner for desert! It was so creamy and delicious! Sorry couldn't get a whole picture of it because we couldn't help ourselves from taking a bite of it!

The whole bill was around $38 and with our $25 coupon we only had to pay $13.01 + $2 coupon we brought + tip! The food portion was big, the food was good, and the discount made everything taste even better! I love paying less for great food! Happy eating....
