Zuni Cafe

Not quite sure what all the fuss was about this place. The service was slow, the clams were oversalted, and the pasta was undercooked. But I might go back because it's open until midnight on Tuesday through Saturday, and it might be a better alternative than fast food (on some nights). Plus, they made a great burger and fries.

The burger featured focaccia bread, great beef (they did medium rare just right), and gruyere cheese. It was surprisingly good, especially considering the other letdowns of the night. But at $17.75, it seemed a bit pricey for people like me who just love to order a double-double and a milkshake at In-N-Out.

The shoestring fries, however, were delicious. Super thin, fried to crisp perfection, and only six bucks for a towering, Jenga-like stack.

That really is a tower of fries! I'm a little intimidated just looking at the image.
