New owners have put the whip and brush to this favorite neighborhood spot of locals and NU students. The kitch has been toned down, the wads of tin foil removed from the ceiling, the yard sale art minimized. Tables and chairs have been replaced, white paint applied, windows cleared to make the place brighter. It remains just as busy, if not more so. The bosses were smart enough to leave the menu of home cookin' untouched. Try the Mexican omelet with veggie-potato hash at breakfast, the jambalaya at lunch and tandoori chicken (on a salad or sandwich) at dinner. The sides are fantastic: Mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet-potato fries and gratis corn bread are all equally tasty. In early 2015, the space will morph further, when a bar is installed to serve craft beers.
