Looks like you have the scoop!

That looks cool - looking forward to trying it. The photography on the site is really nice.

I wonder if they really garnish half the dishes with a charred bouquet of rosemary. That's kind of weird. But it looks neat in photos.

I detect a distinct reduction in charred rosemary garnishes. How sad.

I've had catered meals several times from the Russell.
Each was spectacular.
Can't wait to visit.

Had a chance to go today and it was excellent, one of the best sandwiches i've had. I love the decor and the layout. I love how everything is cooked over an open flame, i think its called a Guacho Grill

Saturday brunch is excellent. I spoke to the owner about dinner and he said it's a big undertaking, but he'd like to get there.

I really do love this place, I love the design, the set up and the food but the thing that keeps me from becoming a regular is the price. $23 for a sandwich, upcharge on grilled veggies side (I think it was $3) and a drink with a small tip - That is over $100 a week on lunch if you wanted to eat here daily and I was still hungry after I ate there.

You can get a filling meal across the street at the scharmwa palce for $8 and have leftovers

Really? I went there when they first opened and ordered a gyro and it was the size of a taquito. I literally ate it in 4 bites and was out $8. Maybe they got the message and upped their portions. I’ll have to try again.

I order the Scharmwa bowl all the time and I can never finish it, it comes with a nice side salad as well. The portions are huge when ordering the bowls, i have never ordered the Gyro/wrap before.

Not impressed with the Gyro wrap (too dry) but the #1 Chicken Schwarma wrap is quite good (and filling enough). Will have to try bowl if hungry.
