Abby Park, A Modern American Cuisine

12 01 2011

I peeped in Abby Park a few times but never ventured inside this East Milton restaurant. I finally made my way in here only because Ichiro Sushi was closed for dinner. The decor is quite American – woody a flair of red ambiant lighting. You can definitely have an intimate dinner here. How intimate? Of course, that is up to you!

When I looked at the menu, I wanted to try so many things. I picked the Abby Park Burger since my friend said it looked tasty as he walked by the kitchen; and I haven’t had a $12 burger in a while. I topped my prime chuck burger with caramelized onions. It was a pretty good $12 burger.

We also ordered a couple appetizers to start off. The Frito Misto of Shrimp and Calamari was nicely flash fried. Tender and lightly batter without much grease when it’s served.  The other app we tried is the Carpaccio of Beef. They used lemon truffle dressing over the carpaccio. I still can’t decide if that thick dressing goes well with the beef. I love truffle but I think it was a bit too overpowering because it just masked all the beef flavor. I probably will stick with Abe & Louie’s when I have a beef carpaccio craving.

If service makes a difference in your dining experience, this is a place to be. Even the managers were helping running food!  Our server was attentive. He was around to fill our still water. He has pretty good time management and was friendly. Made sure we finished the first course before presenting the second course. He was right on the dime on keeping the table clear.

For those with gluten allergies, Abby Park does have a gluten free menu and parking in the rear of the building.


Ichiro Sushi

1 12 2010

Best sushi in the Hood; but not the best in the region. Ichiro Sushi in East Milton (Lower Mills) is very satisfying for the price and convenience.

Unagi lunch box for less than $10. I’m not going to comment much about the unagi cuz you can’t really screw up something that is pre-made from the frozen aisle. What I can tell you is that the lunch box is generous with variety. It comes with soup, salad, shumai, cali roll, steamed veggie, rice. Pretty yummy lunch box.

I also had an avocado salad for around $3. Pretty good price for a decent scoop of salad. It’s been a couple yrs since I’ve been here, so it was nice to stop by again.

I forgot how the sushi is like here. I will have to come back for a sushi dinner to see if this is still better than the rest of the surrounding Sushi restaurants.
