I was pretty surprised to find a menu in the vestibule yesterday from the Hawaiian Teriyaki Grill. I hadn’t noticed a new restaurant, and it does seem a little strange considering the neighborhood. Upon closer inspection, it would appear to be operating out of the Fresca Tortillas on Manhattan near Nassau. The offerings are all over the place: lots of fried apps like mozzarella sticks and calamari, two kinds of wings (Buffalo and Hawaii BBQ), salads, various types of burgers (yup, there’s a “Big Kahuna”), and Hawaiian or teriyaki BBQ plates available with chicken, pork, beef, short ribs, or fried shrimp (how on earth do you barbecue a fried shrimp?). Sadly, no macaroni salad or spam (staples of the plate lunch, or so I’ve been told).
