Chatto Gets Catty

Once you start paying attention to what’s going on, a pattern emerges. Often the meat is quite good […] Then you’ll stumble into a dish that is simply disgusting; the Kansas City Steak Soup at Canyon Creek, for example, which tastes like gravy and old hamburger liquidized in a blender. Or the “hot spinach and artichoke dip with imported Italian cheeses” at Milestone’s. Every chain restaurant has something like it – a witch’s cauldron of calories into which the foolhardy can dip a nacho or two. Milestone’s version is particularly nauseating – tepid, mucal, smelling like sick. And that’s a shame, because so much else at Milestone’s is OK.
