I have to say I'm a bit skeptical of a restaurant that gets so many raves in national magazines that is in a strip mall. DougH is just over 2 years old. It has been featured in Food & Wine and Rachel Ray's magazine among other. I know this because there are framed articles in the hallway to the restroom.
and really that was the highlight of my visit. The restroom. The food was ok, but if I spend $8 on some olives and cheese and $15 on a cheese pizza I have some pretty high expectations. I wasn't too thrilled that we were asked initially to sit at the bar when there was a booth available. And tables here are smack close. Like I knew the life story of fellow diners when we were done you couldn't help but overhear conversations.
The bathroom was very clean and had some mood lighting to die for. I want all pictures of me in this lighting please director.
The unattended candles freaked me out for a second until I realized they were the flameless kind (because I stuck my finger in them, yes I did)
But my absolute favorite thing here was the handtowels. By this I mean TOWEL. I could dry my whole body with this sucker.
If Cindy wasn't waiting for me outside the door, I might have been tempted to stuff a few in my purse. :)
