Mama Melrose (Fanasmic Package)


Soup of the Day (forgot the name but it tasted like chili soup) very good.


Artisan Breads and Spreads, (a little pricey at $7 bucks) not bad, however the free bread basket they gave us tasted much better.


Crispy Calamari - with peppers and onions and a side of spicy marinara sauce (hands down the best I've ever tasted!)


Pork Marsala - pan-seared pork tenderloin with wild mushroom risotto and asparagus topped with Parmigiano-Reggiano and marsala sauce (AWESOME!)


Charred Butcher Tender Steak gorgonzola butter on roasted red pepper polenta, grilled asparagus and red wine reduction (HORRIBLE...Tasted like a piece of charcoal with cottage cheese on it)


Oven Baked Chicken alla Parmesan over spaghetti (DS says it was the best he's ever had!! Excellent flavor, chicken cooked to perfection)


Warm Chocolate Truffle Cake (just ok, kind of small)


Gelato (again just ok)


Tiramisu (just ok....actually a little on the not so good side)

Amtrak Autotrain Grub!

Dinner and Breakfast in the Dining car is included in your ticket price.


Beef Goulash (This was an awesome entrée!!)


Chicken Tenders (Just ok DW wished she ordered the Goulash...which she did on the way home)


New York style Cheese cake with your choice of Strawberry or chocolate toppings)


Chocolate Cherry Cake (Sooooooo rich I could only finish half)

ok, I have to share the story behind this one. Last fall we had dinner at Ohana on a Monday night. It just so happened that the New Orleans Saints were playing on Monday Night Football that evening. Because we are HUGE Saints fans (Yes, even though we live in Nebraska), my entire family was wearing Saints jerseys that evening.

We waited and were seated, when the head chef that evening (Keith, I think, my memory isn't as good as it used to be) came over and told us that Chef Kim (the head chef at Kona that evening) had seen us and came running over to Ohana to find out where we were sitting, and that he wanted to stop over and say "Hi" a little later. We said "ok". (Keith said he'd never seen Kim move that fast )

So we have dinner and Keith comes over to check on us a few times (It was kind of cool to get that sort of attention from the chef). Well, when it's time for dessert he says that he has a surprise, and he sets this plate on the table. Then he brings the regular Ohana dessert to the table (bread pudding in the background) too. Any way, just then Chef Kim from Kona comes over and talks to us for a while. Turns out he's from the New Orleans area and was excited to see fellow Saints fans all decked out in gear. So he had one of his chefs create a chocolate fluer de lis and surrounds it with a collection of desserts from Kona. We talked to him for a while and really enjoyed the desserts. Especially the Kona ones, as I'm the only one in my family that likes the bread pudding, so the others were excited to have a variety. It's DW's favorite, even though she doesn't like the dessert.

Anyway, it was really cool to experience that and to interact with the chefs at both Kona and Ohana. Had a great visit, both guys are great. Just one of those unexpected, "magical" moments.

Thank you for posting all those pics. I have most of those places on our list to eat at and we are staying at AKL so I was figuring we might stop at Mara a few times as well. Going to check out your review now.
