Finally made it to eighty3 in the Madison Hotel for lunch, and the first temptation? The Devil's Fire Fries, of course ($5).


The fries are dressed with shallots, brown sugar, and chilis. I like sweet and salty, and there was just the right amount of brown sugar. And they weren't particularly spicy, the citrus and herb "cooling sauces" were very good.


One coworker ordered this pretty Seafood Cobb ($15) — lettuce, tomatoes, and onions topped with a crab and shrimp salad. There was supposed to avocado, but it was missing on this plate.


Another opted for the Caesar ($8) with grilled chicken. This one came with slivers of silvery anchovies, which thrilled this diner who ordered the dish.


I got the Grilled Cheese Panini ($12) with gruyere, mushrooms, and braised leeks. The parmesan crust on the bread was a nice touch.
