Ok, so I called it a few months ago. I just couldn't find myself enjoying seafood at Red Lobster or somewhere similar, ie: Long John's or Captain D's after living in Nome for a year and having access to the freshest of king crab, halibut, and wild salmon; direct from the Bering Sea.
I went to Red Lobster today and think I will never EVER go there again. It was terrible. I had stuffed flounder that was too wet, lobster bisque I thought would chip my filling in my back molars, and a retarded waiter in his 40's named Chris who managed to make all of us frown.
I had delectable sushi at Drunken Fish on Saturday, and I am salivating now just thinking about it. How can raw food turn out better than cooked? WTF?
So I am comfortable in saying that 3 hours status post a terrible lunch with friends at Red Lobster, a few frequent trips to the lavatory and a tardy appearance at my insurance agent's office directly followed by another trip to the crapper, that I will no longer be going there.
Yes, I am a seafood snob. And I plan to stay that way. Sushi only for me, unless I am going to a high-end, non-chain seafood restaurant. Thank God I will be on the west coast where fresh seafood is available and will actually be edible. No more of this second rate crap. Amen to a new life in Cali! Farmer's Markets, Thrift Stores, parks, and yes, ACCEPTABLE seafood!
