Restaurant Review: Plonk – restaurant name sounds like my dashing hopes

After reading Alison Cook’s review of Garden Oak’s wine bar and bistro Plonk, I was excited to meet friends for dinner last night.  Too bad I didn’t better heed Cook’s warnings about the little wine-bar-that-could’s service style.  You can read the details on my opinion of why Plonk needs to either change their service model or their menu over at Yelp.  However, for the vegetarians and those wanting a little less meat in their diet, I will advise that Plonk is thinking of you.  Choose a cheese plate, grilled cheese with tomato soup, one of a handful of yummy pizzas (I recommend the ELF) or a salad or fish dish from the bistro’s contemporary American menu.

    Hey! I love the new look of the website. And I love the restauraunt review! It is so well written! A little snark, a little foodie love, you nailed it. It makes me want to go to the chron website to find out what they thought of this restaurant. But, mostly it makes me want to go there to eat something. Clap, clap.
