South Grand Update

Tipster (and fellow member of the Connecticut Cartel) Ajay Zutshi sent in these tasty bits:

  1. Riley's, the phantom pub on Arsenal and Arkansas, is now sporting a Fat Tire neon sign in one of its windows. Heretofore, those windows sported only plain white curtains. Could this be an indicator that it may actually open to the public sometime soon?

  2. The space formerly known as Gulf Coast Cafe is re-opening sometime in the next week. The new owner is named Ayub and the new restaurant is called Sameem. It's an Afghani restaurant and the menu reads "Featuring authentic Afgani Cuisine of Lamb, Beef, Chicken & Veal." Tough luck for you vegetarians.

    The menu lists a lunch buffet for $6.99, dinner buffet for $7.99. Carry-outs are $5 and $7 for lunch and dinner, respectively; add a buck for soda. Those are pretty reasonable prices, which befits the area.

Man, this blogging thing is a lot easier when the readers write the content. I don't even have to put on pants and leave the house.

Did we need the visual of you pantless??!?!

I hope they spruce up the Gulf Coast space. The food was good, but you felt like you were in a seedy European cafe, not in a good way.

Circa 1992, I was in the Riley's space, known as Neumann's. I had some Cheetos and drank beer.

I, too, prefer to think of Brian as always in his pantaloons.

I've been to an Afghani restaurant that had a lovely selection of vegetarian options. It was yummy.
