Tin Lizzy's is across the street from Oakland Cemetery, near Six Feet Under. A musician was playing in the bar while I was there, not bad for mid-afternoon. I started off with the black bean soup, which is great comfort food. I would put it in the same ballpark as the version I had at Stone Soup Kitchen, although I would have to put Stone Soup's slightly higher in ranking. I then had a soft taco. Tin Lizzy's are considerably larger than those at Taqueria del Sol. Depending on your appetite, one may or may not be enough to make a meal. My taco had a nice bite to it thanks to the peppers and the meat was very well prepared. The taco was served on a whole wheat tortilla. That's an interesting choice; I don't think that it made much difference to the taste or texture one way or the other.
Trev, Jan, and Karem took me to a wonderful evening at West End Grill located, appropriately enough, in the West End. The restaurant still has its old tin ceiling festooned with stained glass chandeliers. I was too hungry to take a picture of our appetizers: crab cakes and bleu cheese tarts. The crab cakes had just a bit of heat to them, something you don't always find in a crab cake but which worked very well. The bleu cheese tarts lived up to their intriguing premise, rich and tangy. This is my caprese salad. The mozzarella, tomato, and basil were all outstanding. The balsamic vinegar had been very well aged, giving it a thick consistency. My main course was tuna, perfectly prepared to a medium well. The tuna left just enough room for a chocolate lava cake paired with decaf coffee. The cake was rich and moist. I kept scraping my plate to be sure I retrieved all of the chocolate.
