Binghamton Restaurant Week 2016 Review – The Colonial
Binghamton Restaurant Week continues through Thursday April 14th. It's your opportunity to sample great tastes from many Binghamton restaurants. Each establishment has designed a special menu, representing some of their signature dishes.
You'll find either 2, 3 or 4 course designed lunches and/or dinners from each restaurant, and it is a great way to try a new place, or restaurant you may know of, but never stopped in to try out what they have to offer.
One of our sales representatives, Katina and I were lucky to have been able to visit The Colonial for lunch on Monday afternoon to try out their exclusive Restaurant Week menu. We were greeted at the door by the hostess, and were seated shortly thereafter.
Katina's appetizer was the wedge salad, and it was plated very nicely! I got the country fried chicken strips, and it came with bbq sauce, chipotle ranch, and gravy. They were good, crunchy, and I liked the options to choose from for dipping sauces.
Katina's main entree was the portobello and pepper slammer. She told me that it was very good, and the portobello wasn't too "mushy" as some mushroom burgers tend to be. I got the Colonial burger as my main course meal, since it is their signature burger, and it was very good. It comes with lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, and fried on the side. I decided to add bacon too, because... who doesn't love bacon, right?
We were sure to cut the entrees a little short, so that we had (a little) room for dessert and we're glad that we did! For the third course of the meal, Katina chose the waffle sundae, and I chose the banana pudding (not pictured).
All in all, The Colonial is a good choice, and even more so with the great three course meal bargain that you will get during Binghamton Restaurant Week! The Colonial is known for their expansive beer selection, and awesome cocktails, but their food is good too! Check it out before the deals are gone, runs from April 4th - 14th!
