If you haven't heard of Recessions, then you must be new to town. And if you have heard of if, but haven't yet been, well, you're just plain missing out.If you haven't heard of Recessions, then you must be new to town. And if you have heard of if, but haven't yet been, well, you're just plain missing out. Located in basement, this place has enough charm, liquor and deliciously priced food to make up for its lack of natural lighting. But then again, who needs windows when you have a Philly cheesesteak sammie, a plate of proper lamb chops, or a dish overflowing with chicken wings dunked in the chef's specialty apricot sauce to savor? "Our motto is 'Too much for your money,'" said Kazi, who's owned and operated Recessions for the last 17 years with his brother, Haji. And I was thankful for the large portions because I needed something to soak up all the beverages I imbibed on the night I was there. Of course, there's another way to enjoy Recessions and that's during the day when Recessions is at its calmest and there's no line for the pool table. This is what long lunches are made for.
