My Heart Belongs to Chaya

It's almost embarrassing to admit how many times I have been to Chaya Brasserie. I have lived in the neighborhood for almost three years, but have only discovered it's brilliance in the past eight or nine months. Now, if someone suggests going out for drinks I always name Chaya as my top choice. My favorite thing on the menu is their amazing cheeseburger with the sweet, caramelized onions and that mayo with a little kick...it's to die for. They make an excellent pomegranate mimosa and their pomegranate margarita ain't so bad either. The patio is a great place to go and read on a warm Saturday afternoon and even if the service is a little slow, the wait staff is always super friendly. I am thinking about how I love their garlicky cheesy fontina mac and cheese and if I am there during "Industry Hour" (which is usually the case) I satisfy my cheeseburger fix with the minis that come with a healthy serving of their fantastic fries. Oooh, I want to go right now...oh wait, I am going in an hour!
