The earth tones are warm and welcoming and the atmosphere seems to take you back to a neighborhood of long ago, when you could hear the local jazz player, listen to the piano and have a few quiet drinks with friends.The menu was just getting started with small plates when I was there (Owner/Chef Laurent Manrique has now opened a seafood brasserie up the stairs), but there were more than enough unique and tasty choices to satisfy anyone.Once again, I sit humbled at how much the community rallied to make all of this happen.I'm amazed at our various volunteers and supporters, ranging from ages 3 to 80.Before you’re even eating, you’re pooped and in the hole .So, when you find a place that has the feel of date night but still provides an atmosphere conducive to children, it’s a huge win and great addition to your family’s restaurant repertoire.Although I can claim that I am going to be impartial and fair, that would of course be a lie.Obviously this page is more than a little bit based on my opinion.
Local business owner and entrepreneur, Sean Baird, came to speak at Parkland on Thursday, Oct. Baird was a guest speaker in an ongoing series of the Parkland Entrepreneurial Network or PEN talks.
When the trio came up with the plan to launch a food truck, their only other competition was two trucks that offered Mexican cuisine and the Crave Truck, a business started by Parkland student Zach Ware while in high school.
Cracked became a hit among the locals and the truck was offered invitations to music festivals all over the country.
For a few months Watson’s Shack & Rail has occupied the old Boltini Lounge at 211 N. There is limited street parking here, but ample parking is available at the Hill Street Parking Deck or in the parking lot east of the Virginia Theater. It was super loud in there as happy hour was in full swing, but the outside seating provided a perfect mix of moderate background noise and visual interest. They use the term “fine-casual” which is a perfect descriptor.
This lot is just a short walk through the alley beside the restaurant. I’ve been to places downtown before that didn’t even have high chairs or booster seats, so I was happy to see both when I checked in at the host stand. Then our waitress brought a kids cup and coloring supplies. The prices and ambiance fall just in between fast and fine dining.
