Here’s what reader Jana had to say about Thursday night at Ama Ama:
We went to the ‘shakedown cruise’ of Ama Ama last night. Just wondering if you heard from anyone else who went? It was good – not over the top, but good with potential. The slidersÂ will probably become a crowd favorite – mini burgers on a yummy bakery nouveau roll – 2 for $8. Some of the best pomme frites included as well. What was missing: a kid menu. That was one of the best things about Ovio. Ovio had a great kids menu and that didn’t turn it into a ‘family’Â restaurant, but it made it comfortable for families. There was basically nothing on the menu for my 5 year old – mushroom mac & cheese didn’t work for her. AA is a place that we COULD frequent weekly, as we’re at the adjacent dance studio 3 nights a week, but without some kid friendly fare, it will probably have to remain an infrequent haunt for our infrequent adult only nights out.
The other thing that would have made a difference for us is having the owner come around to each table and introduce himself/welcome etc. Nothing. Just a Ã¢â‚¬Å“how was itÃ¢â‚¬Â as we left. It wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t THAT crowded. A personal touch would have gone a long way.
Some other very early reviews (before tonight’s opening night) are in this post and its ensuing comments.
