A Visit to Two Casual But Nice-ish Restaurants
The first is the Happy Greek on High Street in the Short North. I went there for the first time last week. Gourmet food and lots of vegetarian options, and I enjoyed the yummy classic Greek trio of spanikopita, dolma, and baklava. The wait staff is soooo sexy, dressed all in black and ferociously friendly. The second restaurant is LuLu's on 5th Ave in Grandview. I went there for the first time tonight. The leopard print carpet matched the leopard print skirt of the hostess (who is the chef's wife). And, in a delightful coincidence, I was wearing leopard print shoes. We ate fried green tomatoes, peppers stuffed with goat cheese, and mudbugs. I'm not sure what mudbugs are but they come from the ocean and they tasted pretty good. I want to spend more time at Lulu's because I saw lots of middle-aged women dressed in loose-fitting clothes, and that makes me feel comfortable, although I myself do not wear loose-fitting clothes.
