Dining at the Old Vine Grille with good old friends

Me and my old friends (or let me say former high school classmates...does that sound better?) rarely meet up so it was nice seeing them again. Two of the more successful ones treated the underdogs (in other words...the less fortunate ones) and that included me at Old Vine Grille in Eastwood. 
Instead of ordering ala carte, they decided to try the buffet which I think is a good choice because their dishes are quite expensive. For P595, you can eat all you can! If I only knew, I would have starved myself all day...LOL.

Sounds like a good deal right? So I bought it to see if this could match White Hat. First visit, they don't have plain yogurt so I was forced to eat the coffee flavor so I chose to add choco bits…
