Eat Before You Sail

A group of friends recently invited my husband and me to join them on the Diamond Casino Boat.  We’re not big gamblers, but their website promised live entertainent, food, and in addition to a few table games, slot machines.  We boarded the boat at 6:45pm, and waited for the 7pm departure.  My husband asked the bartender what time we were to return to port so we could pace ourselves over the night.  Turns out the boat doesn’t return until 1am, MUCH longer than either one of us cared to be on the boat (thank God for penny slots), but we were with friends and figured we’d make the most of it.  Our first impression of the boat was that is smelled a bit like a bowling alley, thankfuly the upper deck provides some fresh air and the live entertainment was decent.  After a while, we headed for food, and the wait was painfully slow.  I had hoped to land a few crackers from the bar while we waited, but they were all out.  We had both eaten before we left but 6.5 hours on a boat would make anyone hungry.  My burger finally arrived with a side of cole slaw looking like something out of a high school cafeteria.  My husband ordered the wings, and after one gelatinous bite, threw the entire order in the trash.  As for drinks, they offer a full bar, though only Bud and Bud Light for beer.  If you’re actively gambling, they will provide your drinks for free, but the waitresses don’t make the rounds as they should, and I certainly wasn’t about to pay for a drink while I was consistently pumping money into their machines.  By the end of this long night, there wasn’t a corner of the boat that didn’t have someone sleeping in it, and we also witnessed a fight between passengers that nearly kncocked me off my chair.  Needless to say, we won’t be boarding that boat again anytime soon.

Sugar Daddy’s is sweetly promising

The recently opened Sugar Daddy’s Wine and Food Bar is the latest eatery to join the popular “small plate” trend in the downtown area.  On Jefferson, right off Broughton, the location couldn’t be better. With an extensive wine and beer list, plus a full bar and good food, this place should be a hit. Two of us have sampled on a couple of occasions. Naturally, we tried the ubiquitous Duck Confit Panini, moist, tender and aromatic with garlic and thyme, just as it should be. On another occasion, one of us tried to salmon salad–fresh greens, highlighted with red grapefruit segments and other delicacies. The Local Jumbo Shrimp was good, too, although I think the term Jumbo might be subject to conjecture. The shrimp rested atop a bed of fresh off the cob, nicely seasoned corn. The corn was lovely, but it was hard to see why the chef chose to be so stingy with its quantity when corn is among the least expensive of veggies. Desserts provide sweet decadence.

Bar-Food is Rockin’

Dropped into Bar-Food a few days ago. It was only 4 pm, a time at which I rarely quit the work day, but it had been a long and hectic and stressful day and I was parched. Bar-Food,  which opens precisely at 4, held the promise of  great libations and tempting tidbits, beckoned. Collapsed into a comfortable chair in the pleasantly breezy shade right outside, I ordered a Marguerita and my companion a beer. We added an Olive Tapenade for him and Blue Chips, fresh and crispy potato chips slathered in a mix of blue and brie cheese, for me.  All were delicious, unique, light and refreshing. Just the anecdote to a grueling Friday!  TGIF! I toasted, ordering another of those delighfully fresh-made Margueritas. And we sample a couple of Kimchi–one with pickled radishes; the other with pickled cukes. Both moist and wonderfully spicy with a tomato-sesame-hot pepper sauce. During the hour we spent, the place had a steady stream of customers arriving, all appearing to be young professionals from nearby offices or perhaps from further distances enroute to their Ardsley Park domains.     Clearly, Johnny Baker’s latest venture is, as his always seem to be, a rousing success!  Go for it! You’ll love it!
