We finally meandered up to "The Market St," at 1720 Market St., to check out their new look and menu which has departed from the previous owner's Asian Wok offerings (Amen). A fresh coat of paint and getting rid of the giant fish tanks were definitely a step in the right direction. If only they had ousted the red pleather rolling chairs I might not be having flashbacks of what it used to be. The food was definitely much improved. The menu offers a variety of crowd pleasers: steak/burgers/sandwiches/fish/soup/salad all priced between $8-20. Steve got the pork shoulder which was really good and beautifully presented (photo). I couldn't stop stealing the delicious shoestring fries from my friend's plate, in between bites of my cobb salad which had lots of pork, avocado and hard boiled egg on top. Our waitress was very personable and helpful with the menu and our drinks were stiff, a signature trademark of the attached bar which keeps a steady flow of regulars.
Overall, this is a quaint little casual neighborhood spot that locals will keep coming back to. Restaurant hours are Sun/Mon 4-9pm, Tues-Sat 4-10pm. The bar is open until the weeeee hours of the morning when I am dreaming about waterskiing. Sun/Mon til 12am and Tues-Sat til 2am. 425-827-4117. ~j
