Hi! Today I decided to “cheat” on Chef Phil by not eating in Acquario and instead go into the Soda Shop with Fran, who has been part of our Lago Mar family for 14 years.
When I sat down at the beautiful countertop, which is granite and looks like the color of the ocean, Fran greeted me and told me I HAD to order the Pacific Pastrami Sandwich.
Not only did she make me order the sandwich, she told me the way I needed to eat it. I had to dip it in yellow mustard. She told me it was the combination of the sweet and the sour that made it taste so good. Now I know exactly why Fran is so loved by the members and guests and also won Employee of the Year.
That was the most delicious lunch I have ever had in my life! I was kind of concerned about the calorie content but Fran assured me that the pastrami was very lean. I will definitely be back for another one of Fran’s Pacific Pastrami Sandwiches!
