What's the deal with WISH?

Are they open? Do they have a website? Has anyone been? Is the menu similar to the old menu? Do they have that tasty, tasty hummus they used to have?
Wish....Black Skirt....Wish. That's the sequence of events. I don't think Black Skirt was successful. Thank the lord Wish is back. Best patio and martini's in the city by a landslide if you are into relaxing with chill music in comfort and style. Also as side note a very Queer friendly spot!
The portion sizes were small for the quality & price of the food, but they weren't *horrible*. If it was a great plate of calamari, then I'd probably be okay with the $13 price tag. I'm no calamari expert, but I'd guess that they dunked it in when the oil wasn't hot enough so it cooked the squid but not deep fried it the way I *personally* like. Maybe it's my Fat-Kid-Personality, but I like it when there's more batter and it's more fried. But when you consider Mezes' Kalamari Platter for $18ish (I attached a pictures for comparison), which comes with potatoes and salad... I'd rather pay the extra $5 for their salad (better dressing, a bit more veggies), potatoes, and better squid. Especially since that'd cancel out Wish's salad.
The lamb burger was $15 - while slightly bigger, I'd rather pay for a Grindhouse Bison burger. The salad was the bugger of the whole meal! Seriously, $9!? That bugs me to no end. I could hop down to Boulevard Cafe or Cafe La Gaffe for a great salad. I have never tried it, but I suspect that even Wendy's salads give you more.
Hmm perhaps this type of information and comparison would be good for future reviews on my blog? I have a healthy stash of food pictures from all over the city and I could compare a bunch...although I didn't take pictures of everything and maybe it would be confusing to mix pictures of other restaurants. I'll have to think about that
