Ah yes, Blueplate!  I had heard about this place for quite some time before I finally made my way down there, and I must say that it was not at all what I expected.  I now know of 3 cool restaurants that have electric kitchens, Blueplate, Little Red Bike and Nu Cafe, all of which are rockin out better food than a lot of restaurants in town.  The menu at Blueplate is small but they have some pretty bitchin specials every day, and they have quite the drink menu.  I went with a couple of Sliders and some Mashed Potatoes, they were great, next time I am in the mood for Sliders and a Malt, I will certainly head back downtown.  The place is pretty small, so go early and if its busy, don't expect to get out quickly, but in my opinion, it's worth it!
