Fodor's Review

Chef Shawn McClain took the vegetable side dish and ran it up the marquee, earning raves nationwide for giving vegetables the gourmet treatment.

The result gives good-for-you vegetables the starring role in a sleek shop suave enough to seduce the most ardent meat lovers.

Who would cut up and serve a baby Koala Bear's spleen if it had a good profit margin. In the interest of full disclosure I'll let you know I've eaten here twice. Never again. Testify: www
