We checked out the "soft" opening of Ink Well last night on Rogers Ave. near Lefferts Ave. We were greeted by a man in a suit proclaiming himself as our host and if we needed anything we should go to him (Dave? We're not good with names). The story is that it will be a jazz poetry comedy soul food restaurant and bar. As of last night it was pure restaurant and bar, although we were told by the very nice bartender that the first comic will probably appear in October.
Ink Well has a good sound system that wasn't too loud - allowing for the loungy, meet-the-person-you're-standin
few treadmills it would pass for our gym.
We were happy with our Ink Well special sauce chicken and potato salad, though our friend complained about the dressing-less salad and what was perceived to include store bought yams (it didn't help that our friend is a vegetarian; perhaps soul food is not the perfect mix for her).
Pending "hard" opening, check out Ink Well. We're looking forward to seeing how they develop over time.
