Your Wallet Needs Happy Hour

Our droopy economy has affected not only Wall Street and Main Street but also Restaurant Row. We hear your stomach growling for something that doesn’t come from your rusty sauté pan. You don’t have to let George W. Bush’s shoddy management skills deter you from tasting the good life at Grill on the Alley (19501 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura). This Beverly Hills import recently landed in Aventura and already has foodies singing the praises of the joint’s classic American fare. The décor is snatched from the Forties, and the prices on the happy-hour menu also look like a major blast from the past.

When have you ever seen a chichi menu with tempura-battered rock shrimp for $3.95 and steak tartare for $4.95? Now that’s bar food we can believe in, and the eatery has drink specials to match. Absolut martinis for seven bucks and beer for $3.50 means we can pound back a few and not worry about that fool, Dow Jones. Happy hour is Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. Visit
