Ever wonder what it would be like to go to happy hour with Frank and Estelle Castanza at Del Boca Vista? I expect it would be a lot like the experience we had at the Top of the House last Sunday night.
The bar food, while I guess cheaper than usual due to happy hours prices, was unimpressive. A particular disappointment was the salty, leaden pizza. But nothing else was very good either.
The drinks, while I guess cheaper than usual due to happy hours prices, were small, weak, and tasteless.
We hung out for well over an hour, waiting for an outdoor table. But the patio was packed with blue-hairs nursing their weak drinks and pretending they were living large in a much swankier locale. Near as we could tell, they planned on dying there and being buried in the kelp-filled sea.
Meanwhile, the indoor bar area was about 150 degrees, but with the added bonus of a swampy, humidity rarely found outside ... well, Del Boca Vista.
On the up side, the live jazzy combo was actually quite good. And our server, Lily, was a great.
Would we go back? Maybe with a gun to our heads. But it would still be a tough call.
