Hawk's a yuppie haven

If you watch"thirtysomething" re-
runs and long to be in on the action,
prance on over to the new Red Hawk
Bar and Grill. Better yet, slap on some
"Dockers" and drive there (in your
Jeep/MG/high performance Bavarian
Motor Wunder). To those who don't

own "Dockers," stay at home and
open a fresh bag of Doritos. The food
and service at the Red Hawk don't
gag,but the campy-yuppie atmosphere
can suffocate the faint-hearted.
Red Hawk's overenthusiastic
menu describes abevy ofdishes aimed
at pseudo-epicures. Sandwiches con-
sistof "bountiful portions of the finest
ingredients we could find ... with a
handful of fries & that optional slaw."
$.59/.79/.99 menu gourmands will
balk at the "roasted tomato-chipotle
Tir Y v t Noqw ekr

salsa" (chipotle?!!). Similarly, if a
40-ouncer of "the beast" is your idea
of good drink, the prices and descrip-
tions of over 50 differentkinds of beer
will send you grumbling back to Blue
Front. Luckily, a menu is in the front
window - next time you're on State
St. skim it for a good laugh.
Even if designer pizzas and house-
cured gravlax (?) are your cup of tea,
it's best to order with care. Esoteric
combinations of ingredients make the
Red Hawk's fare full of nasty sur-
prises. Most of the ordinary items,
like the cheddar cheese soup or barbe-
cued ribs, are good, but idiosyncratic
entrees, like the Beijing duck
quesadillas, are peculiar at best. At
worst, they'll make you reach for the
four kinds of mustard or two kinds of
catsup (not ketchup) on the table.
The patrons of the Red Hawk are
evenly divided between bar- and grill-
goers. The restaurant is long and nar-
row with a large bar occupying one
side of the room. Consequently, din-
ers have to put up with a lot of noise
