Restaurant Review: 417 Union
I’ve been trying to broaden my dining horizons and started out by trying a little hole-in-the wall restaurant located downtown called 417 Union. There is a small bar in the back and the restaurant is covered with World War II memoriabilia. It serves what the menu describes as “Classic American Dining”. Comfort foods like pork chops, sandwiches, and pastas. My meal was OK, but I can’t say much more than that. Would I go back? I could. Would I go out of my way to go back? Probably not. If someone asked my honest opinion of the place, I would have to tell them “It’s ok, but you can definitely do better.
