The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Roy and the Group!

Roy and the Group!

Well, some of you might remember that LB and I had decided to take our husbands to Roy's. If you haven't tried a Roy's Hawaiian restaurant they are great. Roy's of course started in Hawaii and now has 31 locations around the world. Hardly a stuffy restaurant but rather casual with a nice flare. Linens on the table and the lighting was just right.

But let's get to the good stuff, food! Now do try their happy hour. You can't beat it with everything on "that" menu priced at $5. Don't get to excited the dinner menu is quite a bit more! But you could fill up on appetizers if you wanted and never go into the main dining area.

The guys were hungry and immediately ordered the Szechuan Grilled Tenderloin Skewers, Calamari with Spicy Chipotle Aioli sauce, and Wagyu Beef Sliders with Garlic Sweet Potato fries. Note: We aren't talking Mickie D's here with those sliders. Meanwhile, I'm sitting there thinking, how are they going to ever eat dinner? I did mention that and they rebuffed me with "that isn't going to be a problem." Oh well, we'll see about that.

As LB and I ate a few calamari while the boys gobbled down their orders. I have to admit that the beef sliders looked and smelled fantastic along with the garlic sweet potatoes. Truly a meal! But I was waiting for some wonderful fish for dinner and didn't want to ruin my appetite. I might add here that we had a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc, Terranoble for $5 a glass and it was great. I ordered a second glass to take into dinner since I knew wine by the glass there was not going to be $5 a glass. A wise decision! Remember that students, helps pay for your dessert. Just a thought.

Now on the dinner menu they did have a three course menu for a fixed price which was actually priced well. But since the guys had just devoured all of their happy hour food and LB would rather have a Skinny Cocktail instead of dessert we all ordered a la carte.

Note: Skinny Cosmo, SKYY with infusions of Blood Orange Vodka & VeeV Acai Spirit with Cranberry and Fresh Lime. Yummy! And only 150 calories. But I digress.

For dinner we ordered:

Chinese Chicken Salad which was huge and I might add this was for the man who said he could eat all of those appetizers and dinner too. Right!

My husband had Roy's Trio which was Hibachi Salmon, Blackened Ahi and Misoyaki Butterfish. These were all small portions and served in a long rectangular plate that was divided into three portions. Like a picnic plate but much prettier. It came with a large side order of rice.

LB had the Roasted Macadamia Nut Crushed Mahi Mahi, which I sampled and it was very good.

But mine was the best! It was Basil and Parsley Seared Dover Sole. Truly delicious and LB even said mine was better than hers. Should I say, "Nadder, nadder, nadder." Just kidding, calm yourself.

No desserts were consumed but we had Espresso, tea and of course one Skinny Cosmo for you know who afterwards. She said she was dieting! Puh leese the woman is a tooth pick!

All in all a very delightful evening and I would recommend Roy's for an upscale casual evening of European techniques which meet Asian cuisine. If you take your children, there is an exhibition kitchen in full view that will keep them entertained. Please no baby strollers and we didn't notice any baby high chairs either. Let the "little ones" practice their table manners at Chile's and then graduate them to more expensive dining when they are around eight to nine. The other diners will thank you!

Another Very Nice Flaunt Foodie experience!

Alexandra
