They say it's impossible to please all of the people all the time, but if that's true, then how do you explain breasts? Or cashews? Or the all-around pleasure of Robinwood Café & Grille, open now
Aiming for a friendly neighborhood breakfast-thru-dinner café, the Greek owners of RCG remodeled the Planet Pizza space into a 75-seat diner serving a comfortable, "something for everyone" menu in an airy space w/ a granite counter bar, high backed blue leather booths, and a decorative five-foot-tall antique cash register from 1910, just in case you need to change out that two dollar bill for 40 buffalo nickels. Hearty fish and farm entrees include a full rack of "falling-off-the-bone" baby back ribs w/ corn on the cob and crispy fries; a fried cod, calamari, and shrimp Fisherman's Platter w/ coleslaw; and sautéed onion and pepper-topped char-grilled sirloin tips, which are available with a side, though they recommend just the tip(s), just to see how it feels. For handheld fare, there's a tartar sauce-drizzled fried catfish filet on a sesame roll; the gooey mozzarella/marinara-covered crispy chicken Parm cutlet on fresh focaccia; and their signature crispy bacon club on marble rye w/ specially smoked turkey that the guy in your hall claims he got in Amsterdam from a super chill poultry shop.
To quash the early morning rumbling, RCG's full breakfast includes organic coffees/teas, chocolate chip pancakes, a solid choice of meat/veggie omelettes (Meat Lovers, Hawaiian, Grecian Delight), and a "take that Denny's" signature three egg, bacon, AND French toast plate called the Robinwood, which attempts to please everyone, but hello?? Where are the cashews?
