New Addition to Clinton Street

March 16, 2009


J and I ate at Fat Hippo on Saturday night, the new restaurant at 71 Clinton St. I swear this street is going to be totally jam packed with restaurants and bars any day now, which will inevitably make my rent unaffordable… blast! But, at least this place is chhhhheap. Mmm, or maybe I’ll call it affordable. J and I got: crab cakes, a duck cuban, mac & cheese, brussel sprouts, and pulled pork stuffing (plus 1 glass of wine and 2 beers) for about $60 including tip. Yeah, we overate. But it was all delicious.

I was amused that when we entered and asked for a table for 2, they said they had room in the “lounge.” The “lounge” was a 2-person counter top w/ stools shoved in the corner of the restaurant. Luckily, we could care less and loved the little nook. But, really people… “lounge?” Let’s call a spade a spade.
