Fodor's Review

In a city where culinary classicism is too often code for predictable steaks and pastas, this earth-toned kitchen is a welcome throwback to the age before zany fusion ingredients turned dinner into science class. The six entrées, as well as rotating duos of flatbread and pasta, are odes to autumnal flavors that pair perfectly with the 555 (yes, that's not a typo) varieties of artisanal beers on offer. Try the ricotta cavatelli topped by melt-in-your-mouth pork belly or the succulent brat burger with creamy Emmentaler and kick back for a leisurely, romantic repast. Just save room for the delightful desserts, particularly the house-made versions of childhood classics such as the Snickers bar and Hostess cupcake, and don't miss the daylong Sunday brunch.
