There are three things I love about Kelly’s Roast Beef and not one of these things is in any way related to roast beef.
1) Front parking spaces reserved for customers with infants. Moms, how awesome is that? Don’t get me wrong, I usually have nothing against walking a few extra paces from the regular parking spots, but it’s not so fun now that I’m lugging around a 23 pound baby in a ridiculously heavy car seat (NB: The Graco Snugride 35 is not for weaklings). I wish more restaurants had these. Made us feel all special and what not.
2) Impressive “aquarium”. This picture doesn’t do it justice, but trust me, for a semi- fast food restaurant, their fish tank is surprisingly impressive. Baby C, who ignored all the animals when we went to the zoo, was simply mesmerized by all the beautiful, colorful fish. And the glass on the tank was so clean that he kept reaching out his hand to touch them.
In the future, I’m considering just telling him we’re going to the aquarium and then taking him here instead. Don’t judge – admission to the New England Aquarium has gotten outrageously expensive these days! He probably won’t even catch on until he’s about 4 and think of all the money we’ll have saved by then!
3) Their scallop and clams plate. OMG. Fried seafood heaven! Yes, I know. Shame on me. This was complete and total diet suicide, but worth every extra mile that I’m going to have to run on the treadmill this weekend. Makes you want to visit Boston, doesn’t it?!
Happy Friday and have a great weekend, everyone!
