In an age of rampant specialization, it takes balls to embark on a venture that caters to everyone, especially if you don't have a van, or at least a station wagon that can hold, like 10 boxes of Sterno. Providing the denizens of Kendall with plenty of options, Think Tank, opening today
From a seasoned trio of owners (Pho Republique, Blue Cat, Lava Bar) excited to bring the 'hood its missing all-in-one link, TT's a bar/resto/lounge/club "bistrotheque" that aims to feed your "mind, body & soul" with an Asian-influenced new American menu (and dancing!) in the former 4-room Shine space now decorated in an upscale 70's mod theme with wood floor/beams, mirrors, a DJ platform, photo booth, and of course, a Marvel vs Capcom video game hidden behind a green curtain, so no one has to know you're playing as Psylocke. Foodwise, TT's rocking Meyer Ranch hangar steak frites w/ salsa verde and sweet potato-jicama fries; a Korean BBQ marinated Seoul Burger topped w/ egg, sunflower sprouts, and gochujang pepper sauce; plus a saffron dashi broth'd black sesame cod served w/ garlic baby bok choy and heirloom grain tabouleh, which you should hold onto to avoid shelling out for a new engagement grain tabouleh. For small plate noshing there's crispy pork belly w/ pea greens and pickled ginger; rooster wings w/ Sriracha and basil cream; foraged Taleggio mushroom in a smoky almond pesto; and buttermilk Napa slaw w/ lacquered ribs, which certainly won't help you get any (paint) thinner.
To enhance your dance moves (and lower your Golden Tee score), TT's pouring draughts like OCB Copper Ale while also mixing eclectic cocktails like the F Ginger Rogers (vodka, black pepper, and ginger); the screwdriver-esque Harvey Don't Know; and a gold rum, ginger beer, and green tea blend named the Perfect Storm, also the name of a movie that took balls to film, or at least John C. Reilly.
