For those who are steeped in belief that a new restaurant cannot succeed in a location that has bad history, please ignore this and most of my postings as new space is getting scarce and too expensive.

Chef Andrea, a fun person but certainly not a favorite, hopes to stop the revolving door @ this Turnbull street address (formerly: Sid Mar; short lived Korean; Hindu; Abramowicz, Romanov(or some similar Russian name); and,originally opeened as The Butcher Block (name could be wrong) - to drop a few. A clean renovation brightens the interior while retaining the window expanse to really open up the place. Now, the place includes a wood burning oven turning out some representative pizza types.

Complimetary cheddar and sage biscuits basket make a nice bread alternative.

The menu is online but here's what we sampled:

Margerita pizza; Ceasar salad - large portion and tasty; Tomato, asparagus
with grilled shrimp - a nice variation; Andy burger - large homemade, fall
apart beef , cooked to proper order, with a glass like holder of a handroll
issue pocket of FFs; and. a du jour special of grilled red fish filet topped by
crabmeat over brabant(remember them) - most importatntly not sullied with
some sort of unwanted,sauce.

Not a real steak fan but could be persuaded to try one of the several offered.

Service was better than adequate but the place had few diners for the early dinner seating - an exception to the nearly packed lunch crowd, on the first visit.

Give it a try with an open mind and see if we can prevent another casualty.

Lunch yesterday with an old Metry friend (transplanted to Flowood MS post K). sad to report - it looked like lunch room of a geriatric facility. we were the youngest diners and we aint young by today's sandards.
Concerned whether to showcase on TV and bring my dining club.
Will try a few more times with hope.

It was Romanoff's. I remember going there as kid. It was very good. I thought chocolate mousse was the be all end all at the time. Don't know why it closed...
