    1. I went there for lunch once. The lunch menu was mostly sandwiches. I ordered a buttersquash rissoto that was tasty. The dinner menu is different, with prices (I think?) in the $25 to $35 range. We ate "outside" the restaurant but still in union station. I liked the atmospheere.

      If you want something different, maybe you should check out Thai Town to take our family for something different.

      1. Food's good (contemporary American) - but the atmosphere is a bit drab (Union Station isn't as glamorous as its golden days). But yea, for really unique stuff this probably wouldn't be my rec--

          Sorry to disagree, but I think the atmosphere is pretty cool. Union Station is beautifully maintained.

        2. lol. Do you realize this post was six years ago?

          Look for a recent review of mine of Traxx.

          1. I think the atmosphere is the main reason to go there. Good pork chop, fine drinks. Here is a recent short review (not mine).

              FWIW - there is an abc posting notice on the restaurant, and it appears that Tara Thomas is no longer involved with Traxx, although that does need confirmation, and thus even recent reviews might be a bit out of touch.

                Is there any update on Traxx ownership or changes in quality, offerings? SO is seeking to go there tonight... TIA
