It turns out, Feldmans is a little of a lot of different things. When I was first invited for lunch, I said “Lunch? at Feldmans?”
I was actually pleasantly surprised at how tasty my turkey fontina panini and tomato basil soup was but… I had ordered the chicken tandoori with naan bread. It turns out that when something is new, it has a few kinks to work out and even though the chicken was the special that day, they didn’t have any – boo!
We were the first ones there but it quickly filled up with plenty of our more established members of the community :).
Again, though, they are still trying to get their stuff together. The wait for our simple plates was long, long, long but we were amongst good company and had a good time. I am not sure how they are doing this week or if they finally have the ingredients they need for their “lunch specials” but I would give them a try again.
One of the cool things we discovered in exploring Feldmans was that they have a “classroom” in the rear of the store. I’m not sure of the schedule but one of my lunch companions asked and she was told that they were having a wine class on Thursdays. What exactly does that mean, I am not sure. One thing I am a little sour on was my attempt to contact them via their website when I wrote my first post and not getting a response from them at all. Don’t think of this as a plug for them, just a clarification of a new business in Laredo – but I do wish them the best & I might stop in to their next wine class.
