We needed a quick place for lunch on a weekday. A friend recommended the Lasting Room. Me at a bar for lunch????
It turned out to be a great find. This place is probably a hopping bar scene in the evenings, but the menu was great, lots of regular bar food, but wonder of wonders almost last on the menu was a vegetable risotto. It really sounded great so I asked the waitress. She swooned and said it was her favorite dish on the menu. I ordered it with shrimp which I really should have left out, but the risotto was terrific. Lots of sauteed vegetables in a wonderful creamy risotto. The serving was huge, way too much, but well worth taking home. As I said, the shrimp were forgettable.
Spouse's burger and fries were excellent. The rest of the menu had many tempting items. Because of the midday late lunch time, we were almost the only patrons on a rainy Wednesday. Sat in the back with a booth overlooking the river. We loved it and will be back with friends and family for a very reasonably priced great meal. (did I say forget the shrimp and go for the risotto!)
