I went to Thursday's Kitchen recently. It does have a good vibe, but we were not impressed by the cold noodles or the Korean pancake. If I'm going to pay $10 or $12 for a small plate then it has to be interesting and delicious.

I also tried Thursday but had a much better experience. Tried the dumplings and soft shell crab. Also the popcorn ice cream DELISH. They have some organization issues but I think once they get in the swing of things it'll be a great go-to. Keep in mind, it's tapas, not dinner portions.
