Just looking for a place to get a decent, not expensive meal for those times when there is nothing in the house and I’m worn out and too lazy to do the whole number, and not interested in having Palak Paneer or pizza.
I tried Bo’s but the place was like a tomb. My fried chicken thighs with mac and cheese turned out to be a heavily battered boneless skinless breast and what I suppose might have been a thigh. The mac and cheese was edible. Very uninspired. I felt like the chef was as worn out as I was. Nothing was bad, just disappointing.
Have you tried Riveter Cafe (the old Tangerine spot)? I went shortly after they first opened and it seemed like it had potential. I also like the Tostada (not taco) salad with Carnitas at Talavera. But mostly, if I’m eating “non-expensive” Solano food, it is either take out from La Bedaine, or something at Kim’s.
Is Britt Marie’s any good right now? Last time I was there it was really
bad. So, bad that I felt like Britt Marie should sue to get her name off
the sign, and I haven’t gone back.
But chefs do change, sometimes making a place better, and sometimes worse.
The food at Troy is okay, but once at an early lunch the Sysco delivery guy was going in and out for half an hour. They serve gallons of yogurt sauce, and much of it is wasted, so I almost don’t blame them, but still…
