Unconventional Diner is located right next to the convention center. Service was a mix. We had to wait a while to be seated and was taken to a second room connected to the first via a bar. We had two waiters taking care of us. One was very bad and the other very friendly and professional. It seemed that they were short of staffing considering we were there on a Saturday.

Unconventional Lox poached egg, fried capers, wasabi cream cheese
It was an interesting creative dish. A poached egg was hidden in the middle of pieces of lox. The wasabi cream cheese was pretty good and went well with the toasted everything bagel.


Moroccan Grits lamb merguez, broccolini, radishes, sunny egg
My husband ordered this dish. It had plenty of buttery grits and flavorful merguez sausages. Radishes were a welcome crunch. Broccolini added some fiber.
