Out on the town

Went out to eat quite a bit over the weekend. My full breakdown: The Yellow Bar on Grey’s Ferry, which just opened on Friday, has a really good crab quesadilla, but I’m not sure I really like the space all that much. And I’m not crazy about the way they colored the walls. It looks like wallpaper in a grandma’s house. But it’s worth checking out.

Saturday, got dinner at the Hibachi Grill. Rather disappointing. The place is weird. You walk into the lobby, which consists of a table covered with an aqua tablecloth. That’s it. That’s your first impression of the place. Just a room with a tablecloth. Then you sit and wait in a room that has bird cages, which are always depressing. Then, my chef was impressive with his tricks, but never said a word the entire time. Seemed like he was going through the motions. It was still kind of fun, but I wanted a goofier chef who puts on a show.

Finally, my mom and dad came into town yesterday, and we went to eat at Continental (Original). Definitely the best place I went to this weekend. The drinks were delicious and so was the food. The Lobster spring rolls and Shrimp curry were off the chain, as was the red pepper dip. And, unlike Continental Midtown and Pod, the music wasn’t so loud that you couldn’t talk. I’m gonna take ’em to Fogo de Chao for lunch either today or tomorrow.
