The Old Original Bookbinders was a steak/seafood restaurant opened in Philadelphia in 1865. It is now located in Richmond, and I finally had the chance to give it a try tonight when my dad gave me a $50 gift card.
Now, for our meal, and the pictures that follow, We've ordered the following (For those of you who wants to save a little money, order all seafood, I only did that since I'm watching my weight and high blood pressure)Bread
- Bread is bread.Seared Cajun Tuna
- Served rare with sweet soy glaze and wasabi. I couldn't taste the sweetness, but still this appetizer really hit the spot. The cajun spice wasn't overpowering and it a good start for this great meal.Stuffed Atlantic Cod
- stuffed with crabcake stuffing and the sauce is Buerre blanc sauce sprinkled with sliced spring onions.Asparagus
- Everything is a-la-carte, so I choose steamed asparagus topped with hollandaise sauce. A pretty safe and standard choice.Pan seared mahi-mahi
- pan-seared mahi-mahi topped with 3 fried oysters. the sauce is horseradish infused cream sauce.Creme brulee
- You know what this is, a sweet ending to a nice meal.
Total cost before the giftcard: 107.12 (Thanks dad
