Yesterday I had a great flat iron steak! Really well prepared with nice roasted potatoes on the side. It is always very welcoming restaurant, with some interesting choices on the menu. A local favorite.

I for one am all about the gooey goodness of a grilled cheese. This one had copious amounts and bacon. It took a bit long to get served but the gals and I didn’t mind. Plus we got free dessert for the delay.

Most recent delicious dish at Cindy's was the Korean Short Ribs with kimchee. So tender and flavorful. Total comfort food. Also try the stuffed Piquillo peppers. Done with a mole style sauce. This place never disappoints and the wine list is great.

Description
Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen combines a classy supper club with the flair of a speakeasy to create the perfect upscale eatery and neighborhood hang-out. Guests enter the restaurant through the brick patio, which features several tables for alfresco dining, shaded by a 100-year-old fig tree and warmed by the kitchen’s wood-burning oven. Once inside, the lively bar area, with its zinc top, wood floors and cozy banquettes serves up classic and hip cocktails alike, creating the perfect place for a quick lunch, drinks or coffee and dessert after a movie. The downstairs dining room has handmade wooden booths with crisp striped fabric-backed seats next to big windows with lushly planted flower boxes. Floral wallpaper and dark stained hardwood floors add a touch of speakeasy drama, while cozy built-in cabinets display Cindy’s travel artifacts and a selection of her own handmade pottery.
