Cusbah's Patio Looks Ready For Spring

CAM00767
There's still snow on the ground, but the patio at Cusbah (1128 H Street) reminds me that spring has nearly sprung. While I certainly hope that the weather cooperates with my yearnings, that gathering of heat lamps tells me the crew from Cusbah has left nothing to chance. Should a cool spring breeze chill you, order up the spicy lamb vindaloo. I hear very good things.

I think it was a lot nicer without the awning. C'est la vie.

looks like Cusbah didn't care to shovel their sidewalk in the winter and they want me to eat their food in the spring?

I like the food better at Chicken and Rice. I love watching the two guys that work there, they really try to make your food the way you want it. Too bad it really isn't a sit down place, maybe they will have one in their future.

Wow. Really pushing Cusbah lately. The food is good. But why didn't they shovel their sidewalk. Kind of a bad neighbor wouldn't ya say?

Darn, I'm kind of sad about this. I understand the awning will open the possibility of eating outside in rainy weather, but I really liked the open feeling it had before- especially when sitting at the outdoor bar.

Would be nice if they shovel the walk in front of their building. :-(

At first I was excited and then remembered the best thing about their patio was that it was open air. A retractable awning would have been a lot more practical for hot days. I suppose daytime diners will enjoy it. I like improvements, but wish they had spent the money painting and refinishing the turret.

In other news (or news to me) they deliver now. Very excited about that.

Good idea: Lets make outside more like inside. Their outdoor patio always looked enticing, especially since it already gets afternoon shade. I suppose they could tear this down when they realize it sucks

Andrew,
If you would like me to quit pulling your comments, I need you to cut out the personal attacks on another commenter.

or they could give a flying leap what you troglodytes think when they can significantly increase their income despite rain, foul weather, etc. They will increase their bottom line and prosper with this small investment, regardless of your yearning for the more authentic days of yore. Eat it.
