A few restaurant suggestions for the weekend? Chef Abraham Salum is tearing it up with his home-style Mexican cuisine he enjoyed as a young lad at Komali. The reviews have been great, and the atmosphere is exciting, noisy and fun. This is a great place for a date or to meet with a small group of friends wanting a kick ass margarita. The Brad took some wonderful photographs.
Check out Brooklyn on South Lamar for a dinner and stay for the jazz. The menu is across the board, and they have large appetizer platters for your group to share.
