Mustard Greens Still Fresh
Last week a friend of us said he went to this new Chinese restaurant, Mustard Greens. We were puzzled as we knew it had been there for 20-or-so years, how could he have thought it was new? Then we walked by the 2nd and Bainbridge restaurant last night and saw the brand-new glass facade, the updated decor and bar in the front. The place looked good, it looked new. And today Adam Erace takes a look a the re-done restaurant.
If Mustard Greens had an official theme song, it would be OutKast’s “So Fresh, So Clean.” That even extends to entrÃ©es like tender pork in snappy “firecracker sauce” that would barely hit a 1 on the Han Dynasty spicy scale but was nonetheless lively; and fluffy fried rice mixed with crunchy snow peas and bits of curry-scented chicken. Complimentary smiles of sweet fresh honeydew sent me on way feeling more spry than when I entered. Mustard Greens is fresh to death, and you don’t need a fortune cookie to figure it out.
