Deciding to call a restaurant and bar “Cheap” seems like a bold move, but it might not mean what you think it means. The owners, who had gained insight into guests’ needs through their other spots—Hyde Park Café, Whiskey Park, and the Kennedy—wanted to name this new eatery something that would serve as a daily reminder of their mission: to always exceed customers’ expectations. And, aside from the prices, cheap is one thing they plan to never be called. Housed inside a brick building, Cheap blends fun, eclectic decor throughout, including low-hanging birdcage lamps over tabletops surrounded by hot-pink chairs. Likewise, the menus—four of them, specifically, along with drink and dessert lists—create unexpected culinary fusions by combining a range of international flavors. The signature Cheap menu mingles classic sushi rolls with tuna tacos and fresh ceviche, a tapas-inspired menu fuses empanadas and meat skewers with hearty rib-eye steaks, and menus of sliders and pizzas bring the flavor smorgasbord home again.
?It's time for a new menu, a new venue, and a new attitude, brother!? pro wrestling star Hogan gruffly enthuses in a video introducing his new Rocky Point seafood restaurant. Situated as snugly and gracefully against the water as the star's bandanna against his magnificent golden locks, the bar and grill is designed for fans of wrestling, general carousing, and fresh seafood alike. The latter will find a globetrotting menu that encompasses fine-dining staples such as traditionally prepared lobster tails as well as sushi, raw-bar bites, and Asian and Cajun seasonings. Hogan's Beach beachfront location allows for a sand-swept patio studded with giant grass umbrellas. Indoors, the dining room is half steak house, half dance club with its elegant high-backed chairs illuminated by red and yellow light fixtures resembling liquor bottles.
