Packaging is important...

Feb
07

Akash India has new carry out containers. They look like the kind that Chinese restaurants use for hot & sour soup.

I couldn't be happier. The old containers would weaken if the food was too hot. The plastic would buckle or melt entirely and you'd have a hot mess of curry on your hands (literally).

I recommend the Mater Paneer, level 4.

WTF?

Nov

I just spoke w/Jen at the Fountain Square Chipotle. They are opening Friday, December 5th at 11AM and they will NOT HAVE WEEKEND HOURS. She said they will be open for "special events" but doesn't know when those will be yet.

It's Just Crepes

Nov
20

It's Just Crepes could also be named It's Just Cheese b/c the one I had yesterday was 90% cheese and about 5% crepe. Located on Court Street next to Avril's, it was toasty warm inside during the lunch rush. Not much available seating but most people got theirs to go in the traditional French street cart fashion. I can't wait to go back for one of their dessert versions.

Space Happens

Oct
01

Last night Andy's Mediterranean Grille was as busy as I've ever seen it for the opening of their newly remodeled patio. The area has been enclosed for all-season use and adds a significant amount of seating to the restaurant. The new room has a charmingly rustic appearance that works with the existing structure.

Now is a good time to visit as they are offering specials every weeknight, 1/2 price Mondays, $50 for 2 on Tuesdays, etc.

Mixx

Sep
08

Mixx on Main Street has been open for a month or so and I dropped in last week with some friends for their half-price happy hour sushi. Even though it took a little longer than anticipated, it was worth the wait.

It's nice to have another great choice for dining in the neighborhood. Happy Hour is from 4-7. Call your order in if you're getting takeout.

Chalk

Jun
30

How fun is Chalk? Very. The menu is kitschy with entrees like, Cow #1 & Cow #2.

The atmosphere is intimate enough for a date but loud enough for girls night. There's a little space in the back that could be a courtyard but didn't have tables.

The service was great. I had steak fries, goat cheese salad & snap peas. The steak fries were skinny, not the conventionally thick wedges you might imagine. The goat cheese salad was delicious and had a lovely presentation.

Reason to return: I wanted to try the flight of cupcakes dessert but we were pressed for time.

Brunch

Jun
15

Lavomatic Brunch is the perfect way to start your Sunday. I highly recommend the shrimp & grits. Don't be put off by the mention of porkbelly in the description. It's subtle. The omlette du jour was great today. And the special, pulled pork on griddle cakes smelled amazing.

The staff goes out of their way to be accommodating bringing extra ice for tea and extra baguette for toast. It was easy to get a table the past two weekends. I'm hoping this becomes a habit.

Funny Games & Serious Stuff...

Mar
21

Can't wait to see Funny Games at Esquire. It seems odd that a remake would be almost exactly the same as the original made just a few years ago (1997). Then why are you bothering to remake it? I've ordered the old version on netflix to make my own comparison. The synopsis has me a little freaked out, so I'm hoping to attend during the day with other people to mitigate any lasting psychological issues.

This weekend, be sure to get out to a Tap Project participating restaurant. They'll charge you $1 for tap water and it will be donated to UNICEF for their clean water fund. Andy's Mediterranean Grille is actually matching all contributions they collect, 1 for 1. For every $1 collected, a child will have clean water for 40 days. Come on - you were gonna go out to eat anyway.

Grrls Grab Your Boys

Dec
13
Yes, it’s the holiday season and yes, you have 900,000 things to do but it’s worth it to add this one to your list: Have dinner at Palomino on Saturday night. Make reservations to sit by the window around 6:00PM. Then you can see the skaters on Fountain Square and the fireworks from the rooftop reflected in the 5/3 Tower windows. Very romantic.

Sung Korean Bistro

Oct
18

Sung Korean Bistro has recently opened in the old Aioli site. Dinner last night was very tasty. If you normally order a medium spicy dish, you might want to downgrade here. The scale is 1-3 but the 2 was pretty hot.

I had the spicy vegetable & tofu stir fry and it was great. My dinner companion had the sushi appetizer and the Gimbab appetizers & the Dolsot Bibimbad.

There was a decent crowd for a Wednesday night with only a few open tables. The bar area was empty but could easily hold a few happy-hourers.

The service was great, good date night venue.

Add another new Downtown restaurant into the mix in the BackStage/Fountain Square areas.

Nada, from the owners of Boca in Oakley, are planning to open by Christmas.

Nada will fill the spot on the corner of Walnut and 6th Streets in the location of Bella's which closed because of reported corporate problems.
