Frugal Floozie Friday -- \aut\ Bar
On a warm, sunny evening recently, Tom and I enjoyed a lovely dinner on the shaded patio at the \aut\ Bar, today's Frugal Floozie Friday feature.
We stood for quite some time perusing the menu's numerous options before settling on our choice; better, we determined, to have the staff wait a few moments to seat us than for our poor server to come back to our table multiple times as we tried valiantly to make a decision among so many delicious choices.
Ultimately we decided to split the fabulously flavorful and feisty Italian Roll-Up: Hard salami and spicy Italian cappicola rolled in a large sun-dried tomato tortilla with provolone, pepperoncini pepper, lettuce, tomato, olive relish, and Italian seasonings.
It was a tremendous amount of food for an exceptional value: $7.25, thus less then $4 each - well within the Frugal Floozie Friday budget of $5 per person. And there are also lots of desserts, appetizers and other sandwiches which would have qualified for our mission, too.
The sandwich was tightly packed with so many colors and sensations! Each meat offered its own blend of spices, the vegetables were crisp and cooling, and the relish offered a salty touch. It was a unique and perfect combination of textures and tastes. The fries were crisp with just the right amount of salt, rather than bland or overly seasoned - an ideal complement to the zesty roll-up.
Our dinner at the \aut\ Bar was a wonderful start to a great evening enjoying the sights, sounds and scenes of downtown Ann Arbor.
