i wonder if the lunch choices and portions are completely different than those at dinner?

i may roll up there for lunch Friday.

that bar downstairs, though --- for those earlier who said they "liked foundation, but it was too pricey" and are looking for something similar.... the cocktails downstairs are going to run around $10 per drink, fwiw.

I don't always frequent that side of downtown, but that place would be awesome after a show at the pour house

So we're ignoring the biscuit, sweet tea, and the fact that there are no snooty waitresses demanding a tip now?

That's at least a $6 value if not more.

Just had the chicken and Mac and cheese. Really good, worth the $$. Cocktails are a ripoff for the price, though.

I like that places have fancy cocktails. People like them, they taste good, and their existence allows people to get stoned and come up with names for them.

However, I have no desire to order one when whiskey and a beer will do just fine.

I drink cocktails at home and beer at bars/restaurants. That way you never get ripped off any more than you were expecting.

I like nice drinks and I don't mind paying for them, but you can't charge $9 for something that's half the size of something at Foundation and not quite as good. A child-sized B+ old fashioned is not worth $9. I'm not trying to get hammered at the chicken store, but there's a credit crunch on and I'd like to get my money's worth out of the shit I buy.

no, no they fucking aren't

what does that even mean

people are such simple fucks, the amount of alcohol in a drink is not the only factor in its value

this thread makes me hate humanity

I don't get fancy cocktails.

However, I do like fancy beers.

So yeah, it's always a matter of personal taste.

I got 2 $10 Moon and Stars from Foundation. Totally worth it. Not only was it delicious it tore me the f up.

I don't mind paying more for drinks if they are good and get me drunk faster. This is usually the case at better establishments.

I'm wondering the same thing. Because while I'll justify $14 for dinner, I'd have a heart attack spending that much for lunch

^This is true, but I think the "slightly smaller portion, lower price" model for downtown restaurants has been a pretty huge success, so if they did it at some point in the future I'd get behind it. Until that theoretical point in time, I will not bitch about 14 dollar lunches.




Also, for those of you who are not tiny little women and girly men and enjoy eating a full meal, what is the appropriate amount of food to order here? I'm going in the next couple days and I want to feast but not over order. I have no idea how big the chicken or sides are, but I have to imagine you couldn't need more than two sides.

...plus a fancy beer.

just got back. saw vinylbandit on his way out.

man, it was absolutely incredible. i had the quarter white with a quart a sweet tea and the pimento mac n' cheese. well worth the price, imho. that was the best meal i've had in a long time, and the best fried chicken i've ever tasted.

i think mine was $16 after tip (without tip, $11.85)

Yep. I ordered my food and drink at the same time. The chicken and two sides were in front of me within 10 seconds of my drink being dropped off.

I had a tiny breakfast and went to the gym immediately before lunch. I ordered a quarter chicken and two sides. I ended up wanting more so I ordered another round of chicken and it was in front of me in less than a minute. I vote just order more as you go if you're still hungry.

i waited about 15 to 20, tops, for two people. there's a quick turnover and the tables are communal, which is kind of cool, and results in a quick turn around.

someone asked earlier about portions. i'm not a big dude, but i can put away some food, and the quarter chicken + 1 side had me so stuffed i couldn't look at the plate anymore.
