so many CHs love this place (though i have a hunch most are 20-30)
that i feel we should give it a second shot. wicked loud though. Do you think 5pm Fri would get us some quieter time there? (i did not say quiet!)
It is a very popular spot with people with children. It may be quieter at 5, but it will fill up soon afterward with families and Friday after workers. The bonus In going at 5p is that you likely would be able to get seats at the bar, which I much prefer to the dining room.
I'm well past the age group you referenced, but still enjoy and endorse HK very much.
wow, g, you're not kidding! Fri night is Kids' night at HK! we arrived 5:30; abot 1/2 full already and the tykes kept pouring in. we snagged a great table in a nook around the corner from the entrance. perfect as a quieter spot.
Food was really good. The andouille and red pepper hushpuppies were stellar; could not have been better. Stuffed portobellos w/ balsamic glaze were bland for me, but My Love liked em.
We both had Specials: Grilled Lamb skewer w/ feta sauce, watercress, and farro salad. Beautiful lamb, nice heat to the harissa coating. Farro very bland( they need to take a workshop w/ the Oleana chefs.) My Love completely scarfed his cajun bluefish plate.(Is it just me or is it surprising to find a lamb kabob plate for $28 in a place as, ahemmm, casual as this?)
Alw happy to see Iggy's table bread. Reds by the glass were o.k. Retro desserts of no appeal to me. Really great vibes from all the waitstaff; a laid back happy atmosphere.Look forw to going back, so thx for your help.
