Food Critic for Hire
Last week I had the chance to finally get into 10th Street Italian to see what all the buzz was about. I had walked by a few times on Sunday (when they aren't open) and was impressed by how clean it looked inside.
With my schedule the way it is, I missed the lunch crowd by showing up at 3pm. The place was mostly empty, but based on my experience, that will not be customary. I had a chance to speak with one of the owners about how business is and plans for the future.
I had the 10th Street chicken sandwich. I have been thinking about it repeadedly ever since. It was fantastic. Being used to the "off hours" selection of restaurants, I really don't mind food that tastes like it has been waiting three hours to be eaten. This wasn't the case. It was fresh and tasty. The service was fast too!
I tend to spend more free time waiting for people, etc. in the downtown west area. Getting back to 10th Street Italian will have to become a habit.
