The Sharp Edge – Downtown
Typically having to wait for a seat is a good thing. Ninety-nine percent of the time it means the restaurant is doing something right. As for the Sharp Edge downtown it meant slow service and a mediocre burger.
Ok, it was a Friday. And ok it was 8:00p.m. but waiting for our waitress to take our drink order almost 15 minutes after we sat down is mildly insane. Especially when you have hundreds of delicious beers mocking you from behind the bar.
After ordering a Framboise and Wittekerke (best part of the meal by the way) we waited. And waited a little more for our order to be taken. I in no means mind having a leisurely dinner. With that said, I do mind drinking an entire beer before even ordering my meal or appetizer.
When we finally ordered, we went with the Brie en Croute as an appetizer and I ordered the Brew-a-Burger option. The Brie was delicious. The flaky pastry crust was a nice compliment to the warm oozing Brie center. This almost… almost helped redeem the experience.
I heart burgers. This burger I did not heart. It was severely over-cooked and didn’t include any of the toppings I actually asked for besides blu cheese. There is nothing worse in my book than asking for medium and getting well-done. I was so sad that I was only able to eat half.
If I go back to the Sharp Edge, I’m just sticking to the beer.
