Fodor's Review

You can get high-quality meals at bargain-basement prices at this trendy yet surprisingly down-to-earth restaurant, which shares a roof with Leonardo's by the Slice. Some call the small dining room cramped, while others find the close quarters romantic. However you look at it, the menu is full of comfort foods with a twist, such as maple-roasted chicken breast, spicy shrimp pasta, a seared-tuna club sandwich, and bison sirloin. In keeping with the bistro's lack of pretention, you're invited to pick your own wine from the restaurant's wine rack. For a lighter meal and a lighter price, order from the lunch menu in the evening.
