Two selections that change nightly (aptly named the "entrée of the moment" and the "crispy lavosh pizza of the moment") are the most challenging for the kitchen, Golden says. Indeed, they proved to be hit-and-miss on my visits. My "moment" of pizza was a ho-hum white pie that my guests were slow to finish, and the side of rice on my entrée of the moment, a somewhat dry spicy chicken breast, was so woefully undercooked it proved to be inedible.

But despite some of the dinner road bumps, one can find solace in a cocktail or two from 32 Shea. They are boozy and marvelous, making their way to your seat in a kind of dance, weaving their way around tables and other servers until they arrive fruity and fresh, especially the smashed blueberry and vodka, the pineapple rum mojito, or my favorite, the sweet-n-sour gimlet, heavy with basil. The herb was picked moments earlier by my server, who ran out to the patio garden to pluck a few leaves.

"Sorry about the wait," she apologized, the scent around her strong with the basil's invigorating aroma.

32 Shea is my new favorite place! I recently made the decision to upgrade from Starbucks to 32 Shea for my morning coffee! Great coffee and great lunch specials. The best part is the morning staff is super sweet and the drive-thru is always quick!

The chai latte is excellent! The mention of this article on twitter is the way to get this place to be very busy.

We're so lucky to have 32Shea in our neighborhood! You should try the zucchini bread with cherries!
