Drive-bys - August 29, 2006

*Lazeez isn't open yet, but they now have up a giant sign with a neon message "Open 24 hours". Hmmm. That sounds great for those times when you're coming home late from work.

*Lou and Harry's had a sign that they were opening up a new location on Coolidge, but that sign is now gone. Perhaps they backed out? Or perhaps, like Lazeez, they are just taking longer to get started than they expected.

*PET PEEVE: It's pronounced broos-KET-ta. Bruschetta, that lovely Italian toast that you can put all kinds of toppings on (or just rub with garlic and dip in a little olive oil), is not pronounced "bru-shet-ta." It's pronounced "broos-KET-ta". Repeat after me: Broos-KET-ta. In Italian, an "h" makes a "c" into a hard "k" sound. (The fast food industry has a lot to answer for!)

I checked out Lazeez the other day and I think it's pretty good. I like the mixed Indian/Mediterranean menu and the prices weren't outrageous. I'd love to see your review of it.
