Double Wide Grill has a wide selection of alcoholic beverages, particularly beer, but considering I'm not big on beer I focused mostly on other types of drinks. When I saw the Pink Flamingo, which was a cosmopolitan with cherry, it was simply too tempting to pass:
I was also pleasantly surprised to find a large selection of vegetarian options on the dinner menu, especially for a bar. I'm not vegetarian, but I like it when a restaurant makes an attempt to be inclusive, and for a bar, that is even more impressive. I decided to go for the Caribbean Coconut Tofu, a vegan and wheat-free item, just because I love coconut and I love tofu, so I figured I can't go wrong here!

The tofu was fried crispy on the outside, served with a Caribbean onion and coconut rum sauce, caramelized onion cilantro rice, and veggies. I liked it enough to clear the plate. :) My dining companions weren't too crazy about their food, however, both of which were appetizers (portabella and nachos). Guess I lucked out. I had also read a lot complaints about their service, but we had no problems whatsoever. Guess we lucked out in that department as well! Despite possibly inconsistent quality, this is a cool enough place that I would come back again and give it another try.
