Flying Rhino - Worcester MA

After a trip to the Worcester Art Museum, we went for lunch at the Flying Rhino . . . 
Started with a cup of New England Gumbo -- chowda -- a little too creamy, as one would expect from an inland restaurant, but fine enough.

 I forget whether Mrs or Bitsy had which . . .
Smokedhouse Chicken ~ $10
Pan fried breaded chicken, smoked mozzarella, bacon, roasted red pepper, and grilled onion on sourdough bread with chipotle aioli 
or the mahi-mahi with maki . . . 

 The Babe had 
Pastrami Panini ~ $10 
warm pastrami piled highwith Swiss cheese, Dijon mustard and red cabbage slaw on multigrain bread
 . . 

 I had gyros, pronounced by our comely waitress like a helicopter part . . . 
not bad for pub grub . . . and as I say . . . the staff was awesome, tho' my wife & daughter may have been immune to her charms -- left a big tip, just because of her 10,000 watt smile and the story she told us:
... it's called the Flying Rhino because the owner is a world traveller, and when he was on safari in africa, they came across a wounded rhino, and ferried it -- with some trouble -- by helicopter to a hospital . . .
