THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Schmooze Inc. Restaurant Review

: The owners of Schmooze Inc. are successful as caterers to the stars-touring stars, to be specific-and the restaurant offers the same menu items as those catered to the likes of Tina Turner or Billy Joel or Elton John. The modern décor of stripes, chrome and pastels is augmented with rock ’n’ roll memorabilia everywhere and walls are lined with photos of artists. The menu lists all the gigs the owners have catered over the past five years, and guests are sometimes treated to free tickets to shows the Schmooze owners are catering. If you can get your mind off music, though, and on to food, we recommend the pinwheel of beef, a flank steak wrapped around pepper cheese, salami and spinach and topped off with a Jack Daniel’s sauce. Another popular entrée is the plank-roasted salmon, horseradish-crusted and served with steamed spinach and wild rice. The appetizer menu may be appetizing to vegetarians, who can choose from items like eggplant rolls (eggplant wrapped around vegetables and ricotta with a tangy marinara sauce).
