A Good Life – Hi Life

Posted on

When Mr. Lo returns from Washington D.C., we always celebrate his return with good food and good friends.  It’s a Good Life. We were going to go to Brimmer & Heeltap, but the restaurant was too small for a party of 9 and wasn’t child friendly, so Nutkin moved us to Hi Life not too much further down the street.

I’ve been there for their friend chicken Sunday dinner, which at $15, is an amazing deal and most certainly a must-try!  I had not been there for other entrees, and I enjoyed the atmosphere and thought it was great for children and large groups.  Their build your own cookie for children’s dessert was so much fun!  They provide cookie dough and sprinkles and let the kids get to work.  It is truly an edible work of art!

high life - salmon

salmon – notice, it’s not pink and that’s because it’s wild salmon and it swims deeper and has a different diet, according to the chef.

waygu beef burger - I wish it was juicier and the bun didn't hold up to the burger and disintegrated, French fries are not bad

high life - espresso bread pudding

espresso bread pudding – I heard this was pretty good, topped with caramel and whipped cream

rosemary panna cotta - with strawberry coulis, you could taste a slight hint of rosemary, but it was much too dense for a panna cotta, perhaps a touch overcooked.

We had a great time catching up, crossing the line, and reminiscing about days of yonder past.  Our waitress was extremely gracious with us, including the two young children and our rather lively group.  It’s a great place to gather and a good place to feed the soul.

SUMMARY:
Overall: Bittersweet ending
Highlights: fried chicken family dinner, kids build your own cookie, onion rings
Notes: it’s inside of an old fire house, so the place has its charms; great for large groups and children
