Day 18
Cafe World
50 Trinity Place
Nov. 17, 2006


Remarkably similar to Cafe Seaport! Lots of jagged wooden signs with triangles that instead of representing waves, maybe representing...everything? Same funny font with the lowercase o's underlined, same dark wood inside with 60's green on the ceiling, must be owned by the same people. Layout a little more constricted, but one big +: they have a hibachi station! I filled my tin plate randomly with raw hibachi ingredients, the hibachi operator moved it around on a sizzling 6 ft diameter metal disc for awhile, and voila. I was initially intrigued by the upstairs seating area in the form of a balcony that extended along the back and side walls high in the air, but it turned out to be extremely dark, oppressive, and low-ceilinged; while the dark wood decor worked to their advantage everywhere else, here it was surreally claustrophobic. Overall, a good experience; though the hibachi ingredient selection seemed a bit limited, it was still great. I walked out a happy customer.
