Restaurant Review: Pat and Gracie’s

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Pat and Gracie’s

Pat and Gracie’s doesn’t seem like the sort of place to open in a super-sized shopping center. With its deep woodsy tones, it feels more like a Downtown or Short North sort of stop.

Restaurant Review: Sandman’s Cheesesteak

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Sandman’s Cheesesteak

Although the eatery’s grand opening wasn’t exactly highly anticipated, the lines outside Sandman’s Cheesesteak tell a different story. The trail of humanity queued up in an Arena District alley is rather attention getting; attention-getting enough to inspire a meticulously-timed 11am visit, so as to avoid the rush. According to the joint’s website, the cheesesteak operation […]
