THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Hibiscus Restaurant Review

: Many Henderson Avenue hot-spots have come and gone since Hibiscus opened back in 2005, but the crowds still flock to this staple nightly. Co-chefs Jason Ferraro and Graham Dodds continue to turn out the classics for which the restaurant is known, like massive bone-in steaks (choose from Wagyu or grass-fed varieties) and one of the best wedge salads in town, plus the must-have deep-dish mac ā€˜nā€™ cheese with a crusty, crunchy topping. But the duo is also putting a modern spin on chophouse fare with more unusual dishes like brown sugar-glazed lamb ribs that toe the line between sweet and savory, unctuous roasted marrow bones perked up with house-made pastrami, and pillowy gnocchi with braised Wagyu oxtail. For dessert, go with the old-school icebox pie with crushed Butterfingers in an Oreo crust; it's nostalgic in the best possible way. Dim lighting, cozy booths and candlelight make for an ideal date night, though be forewarned it can get a bit clubby and loud as the late evening crowd filters in.
