In December, Temperance Hall changed ownership and became Looking Glass Lounge. You had to wonder if the Petworth watering hole was going to go upscale. A dedicated Hall staffer assured that in fact the prices would actually go down for certain beers. But still. Now we know. Prince of Petworth reports of a menu makeover that appears to omit vegetarian options in favor of $17 Grilled Salmon and a $16 steak. While these prices are not Citronelle prices, these items certainly don’t trend toward cheap neighborhood bar fare.

I can’t help but mourn the old menu. I want cheap.
