While staying at the JW Marriott for a convention, I ate twice at High Velocity, and both times I felt that the meals were solid restaurant quality rather than routine bar food.
The night I arrived, I ordered the Tandoori Grilled Chicken Lettuce wraps, and the strips of chicken were succulent and tasty, well seasoned and flavorful. I varied putting in the shredded carrots, bean sprouts, and slices of cucumbers to find whether I preferred one combo to another. I also switched between the two sauces, one a spicy peanut and the other a sesame soy ginger, depending on what flavor I wanted in my mouth. I was surprised to see the lettuce wasn't cups of iceberg but leaves of butter lettuce, but those worked equally well and still provided a bit of crunch. The bartender had warned me that it was a messy dish, but anyone ordering this dish should know that in advance -- and there's always a place to wash your hands afterwards, so that's not a big deal. This meal went well with the Bulleit bourbon neat I had also ordered.
The next day, needing sustenance between sessions at the convention, I went into High Velocity again to try the Cubano pressed sandwich I'd seen on the menu the night before but knew then that would've been too much for me. The sandwich was toasty and warm, with a bit of a spicy kick, accompanied by fries -- filling, most definitely. The fries were crisp rather than greasy. This meal went well with the local brew I had ordered.
Both times, service was quick although I could linger a bit there at the bar where I'd sat to enjoy my bourbon or my beer while watching some games of March Madness during a break from attending sessions at the convention. Service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. And the bills both times were under $25 -- quite reasonable! I'd say it's a good place to go for lunch, dinner, or drinks.
