Review by Robyn Mincher
Mayorga Lounge is a strange place. It's an upscale bar with a different owner than the coffee shop yet named after the coffee shop. Most people accidentally stumble upon the place when finding the coffee shop bathroom. The menu changes about once a week, one Friday night its dead and the next it's packed to the brim. What gives?
Ponder Mayorga's misdirection over a steaming plate of Korean rice and beef- with their new supremely tasty Korean menu. Each main course comes with three toppings-including controversial Kimchi (you either love it or hate it). After sampling the tasty food, we asked the owner of Mayorga if this good change was here to stay. He said since acquiring the skills of a Korean head chef that he means to keep the new menu, and let's hope he meant it. The Korean menu is reason enough to give Mayorga another try.
We suggest trying it before they change the food to Icelandic (though that'd be kinda neat too, no?).
Mayorga Lounge is inside the Tivoli Building at 14th and Park, on the second floor.
