Restaurant Review: Ninja Grill

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Ninja Grill

Upon reflection, hibachi places were doing a BYO (build-your-own) schtick before it was cool. Sure, it’s a ubiquitous eating format now: BYO Asian, Mexican, Italian and organic eats are commonplace – all of them with ordering processes where customers point and pick ingredients.  But hibachi joints were always kinda doing the same thing, right? Maybe it wasn’t […]

The building was designed in 1905 by Frank Packard, a renown local architect. Somehow, the structure has survived a history that includes foreclosure, code […]

Treat to Try: SheCreature Drinkables

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: SheCreature Drinkables

With a heritage that extends back to the likes of Grass Skirt and Surly Girl, you’d expect SheCreature Cocktails to be serious about its…cocktails. Watching the team in action, it’s easy to appreciate how bartending is two-parts art, one-part mad science, and one-part pure wizardry.  That same mix applies to SheCreature’s Mocktail scene. Designated drivers […]
