As some may remember, I consider the Bennigan's Monte Cristo (seen below in a photo that actually causes grease to form on your computer screen) to be the single greatest sandwich ever created by human hands.



Unfortunately, I just found out that the Bennigan's near me is closing .  As a matter of fact, a LOT of Bennigan's are closing.  This means I have to pump even more money into my Monte Cristo research fund...and perhaps start feeding the culinary scientists I have trapped in my apartment building's cellar...in order speed up their progress on "Project DAMN, THAT'S GOOD".

In light of this sad, sad news, I think the board should be brought down for a few minutes in order to pay tribute to what I affectionately like to call "Death's Little Helper".

Never heard of this place, but I saw an article that said the entire chain went kaput.

Anyone wanna loan me about 14,000 dollars to install a walk in freezer and pay for 1500 Monte Cristo sandwiches before the end of August?

Here's what you do, hep. Go to a Bennigan's this weekend. Order a couple of Monte Cristo's. Then, after feeling satiated by their grease goodness, comment to the waitress about how sad you're about hearing about the chain closing but how you would really like to meet the amazing staff behind the culinary masterpiece you just ate. Ask to meet the Chef. Be walked out back.... the proceed to kidnap him so that he may cook Monte Cristo's for you for life.

Or.. you can just ask/beg for the secret recipe!

I think they closed effective immediately, or that was the gist of the article I saw.  Steak and Ale restaurants too.  I can't remember the last time I've eaten at either, personally, but that sandwich does look tasty.

$14k? After paying for the freezer, you're not leaving much left for all the sandwiches.

Good riddance. A friend of mine begged me to try a Monte Cristo for months before I finally caved in and ordered one. I took two bites, nearly threw up in my plate, and cussed him all the way home for making me waste my money and go back to work hungry. Powdered sugar and meat were never meant to be combined, and anybody who believes so is a godless demon spawn that should crawl back into the filthy sewer mouth of Hell that birthed them. No offense, hepcat.  icon_razz

None taken, as I know the Monte Cristo isn't for everyone. 

Women, for example.

What I'm trying to say is that I would only be offended if you weren't a pansy girl-man with no discernible external testicles and an utter need to watch Sex and the City reruns whenever you're upset...

yup, closed immediately.  hepcat, you need to divert funding from the recipe division to the time travel division so you can go back and buy up a supply yesterday.

article in question

if your store was a franchise, then you are in luck however.  those aren't in the chapter 7 filing. 

this sounds like a royal screwing over by the owners to the workers.  no last paycheck, no forewarning, just a call at midnight telling them the store was closed.

I once had a coworker who had an even less considerate experience.  He showed up for work one Monday morning and found that the locks had been changed and the doors were chained closed.  Through the windows he could see that all furniture had been removed from the property as well.  Apparently the company he worked for at the time closed that regional office but had no intentions of telling the employees.  They just changed the locks, chained all of the doors, and moved out all company furniture over the weekend.

They've been closed in the Phoenix area for a while.  There was one near our old office in Tempe and it closed down over a year ago.  I've been under the impression that they've been floundering for some time.  I'm actually surprised there were still some around.

The only thing I'm facing is your overt femininity.  How dare you mock the sandwich that was once called "America's Silent Killer" and "Cancer's Copilot"!   You don't have the cajones to tackle a Bennigan's Monte Cristo so you take out your frustration on the most noble of the meat and breading food group from behind the anonymity of a public forum. 

Bah, I must remember to just ignore the prattling of lesser men, I guess.  The Monte brings that out in the weak.

Ours closed in town today as well.  It was about the only place that stayed open past 9-10pm here in town.  It will be missed.  I made lost of friends with folks that worked there.

Two things:

1) obviously, for those who may think otherwise, the protestations flying back and forth are purely tongue in cheek (at least on my part as i don't know how traumatized both eightball and YK have become by this most divine of sandwiches).

2) "white trash" is most assuredly race related, my friend!  while you yourself may not be trash (and believe me, i've got reams and reams of documentation from your nearby Aveda wholesaler that muddies the waters on that assumption...i've told you countless times: shampoo, conditioner, fixer...why you insist on reversing the order is beyond me), you are definitely white...almost a chalk white...you actually reflect light on a level that makes you visible from space...i honestly don't know how you maintain that level of white.   casper the friendly ghost (who, if you think about it, is actually a dead baby...how much more grim can a children's show get??) looks like george hamilton (or "George Hamil-Tan" for those in his circle of friends...of which I consider myself a member of...or at least a peripheral member of...well, more like someone who watches them from a van with tinted windows whenever they're in town) when compared to you.

Bennigans, and the Steak & Ale chain are completely liquidating (Chapter 7 bankruptcy). Was reading some news wire reports about it yesterday. Apparently all going down so fast that a lot of employees came to work and *boom* to closed doors:
http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/local&id=6293681

I used to be crazy about Bennigans but the Monte Cristo notwithstanding, it became pretty hard to distinguish it from Friday's, Ruby Tuesday, Applebee's etc. etc. I imagine some of their debt was due to all the similar competition, and I'm sure with gas prices being as they are, fewer people are going out for their Monte Cristo fix.  paranoid

I did in fact have the Monte Cristo the last time I was there, a few months ago. It's great, but I never would recommend it for lunch on a work day. I felt like a tub of lard the entire rest of the day.  icon_razz In the future, you can have a similar effect on your afternoon energy level by eating half a jar of Crisco, but it won't taste anywhere near as good.  icon_lol

I always thought the restaurant with "flair" that Jennifer Aniston worked at in the movie "Office Space" was a faux-Bennigans, but friends of mine sometimes argued it was actually Ruby Tuesday or TGI Friday. I guess assuming someone doesn't take over the chain, it'll be the only reminder it ever existed.  tear

I did in fact have the Monte Cristo the last time I was there, a few months ago. It's great, but I never would recommend it for lunch on a work day. I felt like a tub of lard the entire rest of the day.  icon_razz

One just doesn't rush into a Monte Cristo, my friend!  One has to plan.  You have to set aside an entire day for the Cristo.  You have to whiteboard your approach, designating whether or not to consume the accompanying pickle, whether or not to use ketchup on the fries, and how much jam to apply to each section of the actual sandwich.  I've had to bring in consultants to help me eat this sandwich.  Allotting this magnificent bastard only one meal is a mistake many a rookie has come to regret.
