It may carry the name of America's collective favorite chef, and the food may look stunningly delicious. However. The food was not worthy.

We strolled in here after a long drive and a short workout at the Signature for a snack and some grog.

We all shared several dishes. This one was blue cheese & truffle housemade potato chips. Way too much going on in here. Tasted pretty good, but I think it was a conceptual mess.

Below is a tuna tartare. This tasted fine, but nothing special. I felt like the greens were a little wilty and the tuna itself didn't have enough flavor.

Steak on a stick. What's not to like? Smothered in BBQ sauce this is something one would be served at a neighborhood pot luck block party. I liked the cole slaw on the bottom.

These chicken wings were a fail. crusted in some super thick batter and deep fried, honestly there was almost no meat on these babies. What a waste.

It all made for some pretty photos.

It was only a memorable meal because of the company, and out collective efforts to turn Carrie's frown upside down with a shot of tequila. Carrie on tequila is a sight to behold. One of my favorite things on the planet, but only when necessary!
