1995 – A dude moves from Colorado to SoCal, decides to open a restaurant that features a LOT of beer and tunes, and the Yard House is born. Today, the chain is spread across America, and features “more draft beer than any other place,” American fusion food, and daily doses of classic rock and roll.
And they do it pretty well. I met a colleague for a business lunch at their Irvine, CA location last week.
Kute, kuddly, Katie was our server and did a great job taking care of us.
We both had the pepper encrusted Gorgonzola burgers, that are topped with marsala sautéed crimini mushrooms, caramelized onions and baby spinach. A great bun, as well, and accompanied by shoestring fries.
Actually, the kitchen “goofed” and brought me a side of the truffle fries (with Parmesan and herbs) and kute and kuddly katie “apologized” for the mix up, and brought regular fries as well. No apology necessary, Katie, and the truffle fries were great.
