Fodor's Review

There's nothing basic about this popular, oh-so-calm, candle-lighted eatery across from the Mount Holyoke campus. Dishes are complicated but mostly successful: try the lobster risotto, the upscale pommes frites (french fries) with spicy ketchup and wasabi mayonnaise, the pan-seared sea scallops with cauliflower risotto, or the beet, chèvre, and mâche salad in warm curry oil. This spot is a magnet for foodies, yuppies, and college students on their parents' tab.
