If you’re shopping in the hood and you can’t get a table at the Coffee Shop or Blue Water Grill or Tarallucci e Vino, then you’ve come to the right place. Tons of seating, which is good, and relatively quick turnover, which is especially nice during the winter shopping season, when waiting for a table sucks times ten. The other nice thing about visiting here in the winter is for their great soups. The one I always get is the spicy beef and noodle soup. Hella spicy, but nose-running good.
Pad thai and glass noodle chicken is also up to snuff. As well as your typical pan-Asian starters like pot stickers and fried wontons. Oh, and very good, very strong cocktails as well.
Service, on the other hand, often blows. Typically very unaccommodating in virtually every way possible. And it’s almost as if they take pride in it- assholes. That said, the last time I was there, around the holidays, they were uncharacteristically nice. Maybe they were trying to get off of the naughty list.
But assholes or angels, at least the food and drink are always good.
