36 Degrees 36 E. Washington Street

Well another new joint opened up Downtown. The spot the owners picked has been a problematic one for previous tenants as it has seen 4 different restaurants open and close in the last 6 years. That is a high number even in the high mortality world of food and beverage. The space is very narrow, and the kitchen is downstairs, which can lead to some interesting situations.

They don’t offer draft beer; which is odd for this area; and their selections are not very spectacular. They had 3 different cocktail specials and for a food special they offered a club sandwich for $6 discounted from $7.50. I don’t usually eat clubs because they can be difficult to fit into your mouth. Unless you dis-assemble them,which can be fun.

There wasn’t anything exceptional about the sandwich. It was well-built and included both ham and turkey with the bacon. Some places like to omit the turkey and add a slice of American cheese,which I don’t particularly like. The fries were exceptional tasty. They were your standard Sysco straight cut fries but they were fried and seasoned well.

On Mondays they discount their menu to 5 bucks. Everything but steaks and an appetizer combo. Also on Tuesday they feature 25 cent tacos. A true taco Tuesday. The place is solid. No flash, no bang, no hook. In the long run that shouldn’t bother them. It is a tough gig and I wish them nothing but the best.

  1. A kitchen downstairs sounds like it’s ripe for accidents, and knee pain. Sure is sad when places keep shutting down. We have spots like that where restaurants keep trying and failing, and they seem like such great locations. It’s like they are cursed. So why is it called 36 degrees? If they had draft beer, that might make sense…

    • I am not sure. Their address is 36 Washington so that may come to play. As for 36 degrees F. that is pretty cold for a bottle beer. So I may go back to grab a 5 buck burger or some 2 bit tacos in which case I’ll ask on of the owners.
