Fodor's Review

Smart leather-and-wood booths, a pressed-tin ceiling, a menu of rustic Italian (and a few French) dishes, a steady hum of activity—it's hard not to like the big-city feel of this hotel dining room. Fritto misto of shrimp, squid, and fennel; orecchiette with spicy sausage and broccoli; and a grilled pork chop are among the evening's hearty choices from chef Jen Biesty. The room is open late, making it a welcome destination for pizzettas and dessert—with sweet successes

like the Bostini cream pie and Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate! (a chocolate creation of mousse, pecan crust, gelato, and sauce).
