I took the kids here for lunch during the week…it was a later lunch [about 1:00pm] and we had no problem getting a table. The restaurant is set up more European Beer Hall style in which sharing a table is often a common practice. But for most Americans this can be somewhat unusual. As we sat down we saw a promotional display on the table for milkshakes. My son was excited when I agreed that we would all get milkshakes with lunch. Well…the waitress informed us that they only had Strawberry and Mango flavored ice cream; no chocolate or vanilla. Seemed odd…but what can you do[my son was quite disappointed though].
Getting past the milkshake debacle…we ordered our entries. I ordered the classic lasagna al forno [medium]. It was good…not great…but good. The portion [medium] was just about right for me. My daughter ordered the spaghetti carbonara which she thought was very good! My son fell back to his old reliable selection…the burger. The size and flavor was impressive [considering it was advertised as a British Burger…. not really sure what make a burger “British”.
I do like the concept of being able to select either small, medium, or large for you portion but I do miss the extras should as fries or other included sides. Anything like that would be a side at SML.
Would I go back to SML…probably not? Would I recommend it to anyone…maybe, but I think there are better places in Time Square.
