by the rivers of babylon

Have any of y'all been to Babylon Restaurant and Hookah Lounge yet? It's a new place on Second Street, but I haven't heard anything about it. Metro Pomona had a post on it for about 10 seconds, but the post has disappeared. Is it a Jason Abboud venture, perhaps?

Gilgamesh knows, we could use another restaurant downtown, and I look forward to trying it out. Not on a weekend, though -- both K. and I have a severe bellydancer allergy. The threat of valet parking (in our downtown!) is a bit scary too; are you only allowed in wearing 5" heels? If so, it's takeout for me.

For all you young'uns, the picture is of Boney M, who had a hit with "By the Rivers of Babylon" in 1978.

Thanks, Ren! I found the photos of the building on your site, but I didn't see the menu.

Have you eaten there?

Ok I will repost them for you

I had the lunch buffet recently and was impressed. The interior is lovely and the outdoor seating on a warm day is welcome.

You should stay away from the weekend belly dancing anyway -- apparently it's designed as an event and costs $40 or more per person. The buffet is a reasonable $10.

I expect to be blogging about it soon.
