Guide Review - Stoudemire's Downtown
Since the neon sign above the door still says Lucky Break Game and Grill, but a sign out front announces the restaurant as Stoudemire's Downtown, we assume this is a new conversion. Happy that local popular Chef Eddie Matney has found a new home downtown, we gave it a try.
I like the look of the place. Lots of TVs, nice bar, great colors, and a nice modern, open feel. The crowd looks a bit older to me than the crowd at Majerle's, for example.
The menu is limited, but appropriate for a pre-game, theatre, or symphony meal. Not too much, not too heavy. Lots of people around us ordered potstickers as an appetizer. We tried the Boneless Wings and the Quesadilla. The wings weren't soppy in buffalo sauce, and I like that. For our meals we had a Cheeseburger, a French Dip, and Ravioli. They were all good, with appealing presentation. I ordered my French Dip with sweet potato fries--they were fantastic!
By about an hour and a half before game time, the place was packed. I normally don't comment on service unless it was extraordinarily good, or really bad. Here it was really bad. Even before it got crowded. Let's hope it improves as they get established.
