Fodor's Review

The visual delights at this winning restaurant include its clean lines and handsome decor, but the eye inevitably drifts westward to the open kitchen, where chef Armando Navarro and his diligent crew craft flavorful dishes full of subtle surprises. Focusing on locally sourced ingredients, the menu might include bomba-rice paella awash with seafood and linguica sausage, or duck confit accompanied by farro salad, kale, mushrooms, and almonds. Even a simple dish like truffle-oil fries, liberally sprinkled with Parmesan, charms with its combination of tastes and textures. The noteworthy desserts include profiteroles with toasted marshmallow and chocolate ganache, and cornbread French toast with strawberries and buttermilk sherbet.
