Lunch at 900 Grayson

Last Friday, husb and myself made a Costco run, gassed up, took the wonderful stroll around Cesar Chavez Park on a beautiful day and then repaired to 900 Grayson for lunch.

Upon seeing it for the first time, my heart sank a little. It replaced a joint I never entered but noticed every time I passed for the last 30+(?)years -a red greasy spoon that I wish I'd photographed.

Finding a parking place directly in front of the place was a good sign.

It's quite lovely inside, with a nice patio in back. The chairs are a bit spartan (wood with no cushion) and it was really noisy because we arrived around 1:20. I'm sure it'd be much quieter before noon or at around 2.

We both had lattes which were stellar.

Husb. had the chopped Cobb Salad which he said was delicious. I had a lamburger (called something cutesy like Maharaja Mac) with fries. It was juicy and tasty, but there was a little too much of a sour note to the sauce. The fries were of a size between regular and shoestring - very nice and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

We were both quite satisfied with the food although the bill came to $30+ after adding the tip. A bit steep.

The service was also good. I'm hoping to get back there for breakfast this Friday.
