On my way home from the library this afternoon I noticed a new awning and menu in window of the former Erba. The name of the reconcepted restaurant is "chelsea grill" with the subtitle "comfortable food" using only lower case letters.
Menu in window is dated 9/24. Tables seemed set for service, so they may have had a soft opening.
Main dish prices range from $7.95 for some sandwiches including a hamburger to $18.95 for an aged NY strip steak with blue cheese butter and fries. Macaroni and cheese is $8.95. There seem to be a lot of cliches on the menu. The prices seem fairly good for that strip of Lincoln. I think I will let someone else try food that we can make very well at home without gimmicky features but with excellent quality for less money. But then, some of the things in the thread about Erba do not make me want to try anything new from the same owner.
