50% off the "New Menu" At Lawry's
Lawry's is running a promotion this month, proudly boasting of 50% off anything on their "new menu," as long as you also order a prime rib too. I wasn't exactly going to turn down any deal at Lawry's, so we went over there tonight.
The so-called "new menu" featured things like a Pastry Beef Tenderloin, Steam Baked Boneless Chicken Breast, and Pan Seared Salmon Filet. We went for the Oven Baked Rack of Lamb, which unfortunately I didn't like at all. Sure, it was tender and all, but the sweet honey coating and breadcrumbs on this thing was a huge turnoff for me (it almost seemed like cereal prawns...but on lamb chops). It's a good thing that the prime rib was required as part of the package then, as it still proved tasty as ever (I went for the thinner English cut tonight).
When I got the check in the end, I realized why this was actually such a good deal for Lawry's. Sure, it sounded like a huge discount at 50% off, but in the end, that only saved us about 15-20% off the total bill (after factoring in the prime rib, drinks, service charges, etc.). And yet Lawry's pulled us in for the kill. Well, it was worth it (the prime rib, anyway), but the price tags obviously don't warrant eating here all the time.
