Last Saturday my husband and I went exploring in the north end of town. It was not new to me, I had spent my youth there, but he wanted something new. I took him someplace old. The Sindia was built around 1908 and three years ago it was taken over by new owners. This is not a chain, it's a family restaurant; the daughter sat us, the son waited on us, Mom checked us out, and we chatted with Dad. I'd eaten there dozens of times in my youth and commented that the floors were still beautiful. They then told me what it took to restore them to their original beauty.
(I was curious to hear) The place was nice, but casual in dress, not sloppy, and service was terrific. Early bird hours are from
4-5. We went at 4:30, which has specials for $13.95-soup to dessert. We were celebrating our anniversary so we had surf & turf, $28.95.. I couldn't eat my potato the fillet mignon was so large and the lobster nicely cut off the shell and not on my dress.
It's still white, with royal blue awnings and red trim. The family is constantly upgrading. The only drawback was the stairs, they will accommodate physically challenged people outside, but they are working on permits to give access to all. I see the Sindia as a baby, just getting better and better.
