A moment of silence, please, for Sinbad Mediterranean Cuisine, 5801 Northwest Expressway. Louis Dakil is auctioning it all off — “from wall to wall and floor to ceiling” — at 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 17. Equipment and furnishing, not the real estate Inspection starts at 9 a.m. Details and photos here.
Meat? Good! Taters? Good! Chicken-fried spinach (tempura battered)? Good! Spicy? Good, good, good! Buffet? Better!
They had belly dancers some evenings, but I never saw them, being a weekday lunch buffet customer. They had a “Shookah Lounge” — for “sharing a hookah,” I guess — but I never tried that either, for the same reason.
The food was good enough.
Alas, another good eatin’ joint bites the dust — probably (I’m just guessing) for the same reason most do: Lack of advertising. I never saw any ads for the place, anyway. It’s a shame.
