The Brass Lantern (Fallout 3) by Wanderer, T.L. - 3/5 stars
“As far as establishments go, The Brass Lantern is…not bad. It’s the closest thing to a family-friendly restaurant around that hasn’t been reduced to ash or taken over by super mutants. Yet, at least. People these days would rather have a bar, a tavern, a pub, or some combination of all three, it seems.
"As far as entrees go, they got a good Brahmin steak that’s not awful with a little bloatfly gravy on it, but it’s really hard not to be distracted by how unclean the place is. Half the menu was scrapped off a Brotherhood guy’s power armor yesterday and the other half expired in 2032. Also, I heard one of the guys who run the place, Leo Stahl, has a real bad addiction to Jet. I mean…yeah, I *do* drink water from abandoned public toilets to stay alive out there, but it’s not like I’m paying for the privilege to do so.”
