50 Days of Dragon Con Day 28

A Good Place to Eat

When the total debocle of Twenty-Two Stories was over I was famished.  I decided to go to a restaurant that I have walked past for years and have never been in.  I went to Sear.  Sear is a steak place on the Atrium level of the Marriott Marquis.  I have been passng by ther for years and years.  It never looks full and I have often questioned if it is open or not. 

At previous cons I used to always eat at the food court.  RAH not all that, I promise.  You get tired of fast food after 4 days.  I have even tried renting a car and going to the grocery store.  That worked, sort of.  But still, I was limited to fast sandwiches and chips that are not a lot better than the food court food.  Then you add in the cost of the rental car and it was not really worth it.  When CVS went in the mall, that helped a bit but still what they carried was all fast-ish food and not really a step up, just more variety.  Even with the secret food court, still, fastish food.  There are lots of sit-down restaurants.  Most of them are pretty fancy and kind of expensive.  That is unless you leave the host hotels and go out to see what is out in the great wide world.  I usually try to avoid going out because Atlanta is very hot and humid in August.

I decided to try Sear.  I went into a mostly empty restaurant and was instantly sat.  I looked at their menu and decided to order a steak and macaroni.  I have to say this is one of the better steaks I have ever had.  E.V.E.R.   Since this one random decision, I have gone to Sear every year since then.  I have tried many different side dishes and desserts.  All have been exquisite.  If you have some extra cash-Sear is kind of expensive-I whole hartedly recommend making a stop into Sear.
