Has anyone (besides me) got full blown food poisioning from a Landry's owned restaurant?

i eat at vic & anthony's, pesce, and la griglia all the time [ducking and running].

no food poisoning ever. but i do stay away from their lower end restaurants, not for fear of getting sick, but for more obvious reasons.

I've eaten at a variety of Landry's establishments at least a couple of times of month for the past several years and I don't recall getting sick from the food.

I've eaten at Pesce (good stuff), but I've always been curious about La Griglia, is it all that and a bag of chips? I keep hearing that it is. V&A is nice, but the steaks aren't all that special to me. If I wanted to go on that level, I'd go to Papa's Steakhouse or go to one of Landry's Cheaper offers.

Also, I have never understood people's strong aversion to lower end dining. It's not like you're walking in and get instantly infected with E-coli or something. Have eaten at the various migrant taco joints, mom and pop places, the only time I've ever gotten sick was from eating at a Jack in the Box 10 years ago. Never stopped me from eating from there.

BTW, I like the two new food blogs that I saw added as signatures on this post from sheeats and neverfull. :)

Come meet us both next weekend as we are judging the "No Holds Barred" Chili Cook-off at Shady Tavern in the Heights on 10/11. If that doesn't tempt you, maybe $5 AYCE chili will.

and for the record, sheeats is the better blog ;)

i have an aversion to lower end *chain* restaurants, like joe's crab shack or the olive garden. i LOVE low end divey mom and pop joints. it's where to get the best ethnic food in houston! himalaya and vieng thai come to mind.

I have to agree with you on Joe's Crab and Olive Garden. I ate there a number of times and have generally thought of them as So-so. Olive Garden was always just crap to me, but when I am craving pasta and I have no other alternatives nearby they do in a pinch.

Try this the next time you'e craving pasta:

Boil some water.

Dump some pasta in it.

Drain it.

Eat it.
