Restaurant Tidbits

So apparently there’s a new Mongolian Grille [sic] in the former daVinci’s location near 66th and O. One person who ate there recently described it to me as follows: “Chinese buffet is decent, grill is scaled down HuHot. Overall, nothing spectacular.” I wonder if it’s this Mongolian Grille, or if it’s something different—local, even. Regardless, the extraneous ‘e’ is just plain goofy in the context of a glorified buffet.

In sad news, it sounds like Roost is dead. The doors are locked and the website is dead. That bums me out. Roost was a great little restaurant that just never quite caught on. Its death was inevitable, especially given the extremely shortened hours it featured over the past several months, but I’m still saddened. RIP Roost. Maybe it will find new life somewhere else.

We just had lunch from there last week. Thought their pasta was pretty darn good.

I liked Roost too but I don’t think they did that good of a job marketing their product. There are also so many other sandwich shops in that area and honestly, a sandwich is about the last thing I want in a restaurant because I eat my own 4-5 days a week for lunch.

Businesses that try to be something other than a bar, club, or food that people like after going to the aforementioned places are going to have a harder time surviving in that part of downtown.
