Armani Cafe -- is this a joke?

Armani Cafe -- is it just hype?

I walk by the Armani Cafe all the time and all i can think is... why are people eating at a clothing store.... is the food really that good?...... if that was Wal-Mart.... and the foot was just as good.... do you think anyone would be hanging out there and eating?

Has anyone ever ate there Is the food really that good... or is this just a joke, and a game of dress-up and be-seen?

A friend took me there for dinner a couple years ago. The oasta was pretty good - nothing to write home about. Seemed like a weird choice in an area with so many good dining options.

Years ago (before I met Mrs. H) a young lady friend and I took in lunch at the Armani Cafe. I wanted to live like the BMW-driving, trust-fund babies that invade my city. It was a Saturday afternoon in May. After waiting an hour to be seated outside, I was finally there to BE SEEN...yeah, to be seen paying an exorbitant amount of money for, and I quote the late, great Rodney Dangerfield, "low-grade dog food!"

You hit the nail on the head. It's for the, and I'll put this delicately, (the word for currency in Europe + what a garbageman collects= the clientele at Armani) . Don't waste your money.

It won't be a joke for long. The Armani E and the Armani Cafe are closing.

The reason that the Armani cafe was popular in the good weather was that it was the only good sized sidewalk cafe on the right side of the strret, not only on Newbury, but in the city, period. This amenity is commonplace in most "world class cities" but not here.

Healy04 hit it on right on. You don't go there to eat. You go there to be seen eating there.
