Sounds like a couple of dates I've been on... [Jun. 25th, 2013|03:03 pm]

Some nights, your menu tells a story.

You’re just not sure it’s a story you want to BE in. Doing my expense reports, I come across a restaurant receipt from my last trip.

Here’s one night’s dinner: Walking Dead, Roasted Duck, Brussel Sprouts, Forlorn Hope, Chocolate Tart, Hum.

Depending on how you choose to define that last one, it could have ended well...or not.

(Walking Dead, Forlorn Hope are cocktails and Hum a liqueur)

After having the Walking Dead as an appetizer, I don't know that anyone would want to keep down any of the following courses, much less the last one.

Think of me as the Walking Dead, having spent the day listening to lectures on emerging trends in bio-polymers, scraping the limits of my memory of bio-chem, talking feedstocks and real-life deployment strategies.

But then, having shuffled to a table in a lovely little gastropub, ordering a Walking Dead, which was zombie juice (rums, pineapple and maybe some other stuff), templeton rye, angostura, mint and ginger beer. The Walking Dead made me feel less like the Walking Dead.

But then I got a glass of Forlorn Hope, a California red, so obviously, the revival was temporary.

so why weren't they creative with the other menu items?

I guess maybe their creativity is limited to the drink menu ... I mean would you have ordered "Roast Duck" if it was named "Foul Feathered Friend"?

I'm, guessing the "Hum" was short for "Hummus"? or of course it could very well be the more obvious intriguing alternative, meaning this gastropub truly is full service
