The supper clubs they are a-changing

M Supper Club in Crystal Lake, Illinois may call itself a supper club but the menu is decidedly untraditional!
 
Around here the beer with 3 initials is PBR, not CLB...

    Maybe because it's in Illinois?

    A little bit of hipster and a little bit of tradition- sadly something that's probably needed to survive in today's day and age.
    When I go to an Iowa Supper Club I expect a nice gigantic thick juicy Iowa Chop (smoked or not) freshly grated shredded hash browns with a slap of American cheese and smothered fried onions and a you name it salad bar with every homemade marinated and mayo concoction imaginable.

    I dunno, looking at the menu, it isn't too far off the accepted mark.  All the usual suspects are represented in some form; Friday Fish Fry, Saturday Prime Rib, etc.  Some of it is a bit frou-frou, but over all it respects tradition.  The most obnoxious things I saw were the references to sandwiches as "Handhelds" and side dishes as "Escorts".  Escorts???  Seriously?
     
    Still, it might be worth a visit by The Contingent some Friday or Saturday when we're in an anarchistic mood.

    .99 on the food items remind me of diner pricing, not fine dining. Wine prices are all over the place with some real bargains.
