Review: Thames Street Kitchen

By BILL RODRIGUEZ  |  September 20, 2011

The available desserts of the day were on a chalkboard ($6). They included an orange sorbet as well as doughnuts our server said she would fry to order. But my dining companion was apparently suffering from an acute theobromine deficiency, so she insisted on our having both the kitchen-made chocolate ice cream and the chocolate cookies. The cookies contained the maximum legal chips-to-carbs ratio, and the ice cream pleased both of us bittersweet aficionados, even though the flavor was mild cocoa, with tiny bits of dark chocolate. Interesting aftertaste: I drifted back to sipping Yoo-Hoo.

Ah, more nostalgia certainly is in store for the future. As Johnnie recalled, there have been at least two prior restaurants in this space. Tsk-tsk. Let's drink to this one staying here forever.
