THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Space Restaurant Review

: Unlike anything else on The Hill, Space, or as it occasionally refers to itself, Restaurant Space, sports a vigorously modern décor with bright colors, particularly astonishing when compared to the outside of its unremarkable building, which is tucked under the western side of the Kingshighway viaduct. There's a notable mix of customers, ranging from casually dressed young-ish bar regulars to older patrons who've waited for this third generation restaurant, whose predecessors were the restaurants Colorado and, before that, Redel's. The family inheritance, as it were, is a collection of vintage Fifties radios in a rainbow of pastels, surprisingly comfortable-looking in such a place, and a considerable number of menu items from the past. That's not to say that the food's retro, with one notable exception. The appetizer menu ranges from Thai noodles to a hummus of the day, for instance, and some of the dishes, but not all, are very spicy indeed. The Queen of Retro is a pair of fried chicken breasts, a deep golden brown, moist and flavorful, with some zippy mashed potatoes alongside. There are interesting choices on the wine-by-the-glass list.
