Tranquility Base Downtown

Stopped by the new Tranquility Base in the Sky Loft building a few days ago. They opened last week. We just stopped by to have a drink and ended up ordering a small plate (cheese plate). Wow, it was great. Everything that came out of the kitchen looked delicious. The owners are very friendly and they are going to open a patio fire pit soon. This place is a very is a much needed addition to the restaurant scene. All small plates but the range is around $6 to $12. Great drinks as well. I hope the downtown locals really support it. Finally a place in South Park that is open every day.

    We checked it out last night. Between the patio, bar, and dining space, it's quite large and was about 1/3 to 1/2 full - not bad for a Wednesday night. We had a salad, sliders, chicken satay, and fries, and we felt that it all was very pleasant (though not remarkable). It's certainly a step in the right direction for the Downtown restaurant scene, which still is lacking in neighborhood joints. I'm pulling for its success, both because of its good-hearted owner and in the hopes that restaurants like it will pave the way for more inspired fare!

      Thanks for the tip. Sounds great. I'll try it for lunch. It's on Grand at 8th, right?

      I'm very curious about hounder's review regarding their food on the dinner menu. To see if it's worthwhile maybe to throw my bday party there. I love those cabanas seating!
