A Terrific Burger at Sunnyside Up!

Two of our foodie friends had lunch recently at Sunnyside Up (800 DeRenne).  Now we know that Sunnyside Up has great breakfasts–super-fresh eggs, heavenly hash browns, wonderful omelets.  But we’d never thought of them as a lunch spot. One of my friends reported “best burger I ever ate!”, and the other said his Tuna Club ws the best he’d ever eaten.  Sounds  worth a trip to us!

The Resurrection of the Old Crystal Beer Parlor

 The enlarged bar is beautiful and inviting! But beware if you’re much under 5 ft. 5  inches tall….the bar stools can be a bit uncomfortable. The renovations add an airy and lighter feel, all welcome. As to the food, let’s say they’re suffering some growing pains… The famous “Crystal Burger” is passable. Might have been better if cooked medium rare as ordered, but it came well done and dry; onion rings were delicious! Big, fat slices of onion, not overly battered –but a bit too salty. Bowl of chili was excellent. I’d have liked a bit more heat, but probably perfect for lots of folks. The so-called “Greek taco” supposedly a gyro in a pita shell, is neither Greek nor…? Pretty tasteless filling in a soggy shell. Hand cut fries were limpid. But the beer and ale selection is terrific! We’ll give the place another try after a coupe more months.
