Restaurant of the Month

Frankie and Benny's, Rochester, UK

This is one of a large chain of similar restaurants, usually found occupying sites next to cinemas and entertainment complexes in the UK. In America we had generally avoided these places. Unfortunately in doing so we missed out on a great number of opportunities for some splendid meals. It was only towards the end of one of our long stays in the US that I was able to sample some of the best ribs I have ever tasted - at Ruby Tuesday's, Boston (MA). Great places to eat (along with Red Lobster, The Olive Garden etc.). Interestingly, I see that RT have opened an establishment in Cardiff. A trip across the border seems inevitable.

Anyway, we not only had a great (if not completely healthy) meal at F&B's in Rochester but it was efficiently handled and fun. Alex, our waiter, was extremely pleasant, attentive and courteous. We had starters of prawn cocktail and calamari followed by mains of New York chicken and a full rack of ribs (of course), drinks and coffee. The place was packed and lively. A fun evening, happy food and fast, pleasant service.

We won't be too ashamed to eat at another F&B's in the future.
