JM ate the baked cod fish fry with hash browns and a lemonade.
Nichole ate the pork chop with green beans and clam chowder with a decaf.
We split a piece of mint ice cream pie.
The bill was $31, or $15.50/person, plus tip.
JM gave Cozee Inn a C+; Nichole gave Cozee Inn a C (see our grading rubric).
We didn't think so either. After being passed by at least five waitresses, we were led from the sunny, homey upstairs to this chill dungeon, where we passed the next hour by ourselves, except for the occasional visitor passing through to the restroom. Every time we heard the soda jets in the bar (no free refills, btw), the lights dimmed.
The menu is typical supper club fare, right down to the token exotic item, the "Malaysian chicken" in sweet and sour sauce. The salad bar was tiny, the bread basket depressing; the clam chowder Nichole got was not bad, but the meat in her first bite had the consistency of chicken.
We were so fascinated by the mint ice cream pie that we did some research and we think we have figured out the recipe:
- Buy mint ice cream and a generic Oreo crust.
- Melt ice cream.
- Pour ice cream into crust.
- Slice, gussy up with Reddi Whip and Hershey's syrup and serve!
Of course, what did we expect, ordering ice cream pie?
We're so infrequently in Verona anyway that Cozee Inn seems like a depressing and unnecessary supper club because getting there involves passing right by Feiler's, a cozier and far superior place in the same idiom. This club is a little less than super and more than supper.
