@Beda, I totally agree, went to Chesterfield's for  lunch, ordered a glass of Merlot, twenty minutes later learned they didn't offer Merlot.  There was nothing on the menu that interested me at all.  The whole thing was very weird and strange. Eddy was there and acted equally as weird and strange.

The new Bone Daddy's on Tollway and Parker? just opened up last week. They should be open for lunch as of this week.

I had lunch at Chesterfields; I don't know about the evening, but I can't see it staying open for lunch.  $13 for basically a reuben with a side of frisee salad that wasnt' good at all.  I was still hungry after I left.  There are too many high-end restaurants within walking distance of Chesterfield and their food doesn't compare; they should lower the price point to make it attractive to the downtown worker looking for a good meal and a good deal.

I've been to Bolsa Mercado. If I lived nearby in the OC, I'd give it a 92. If it were in Dallas say, in "Uptown", I'd have to give it a 65 at best.
