A high-energy, high-ceiling dining room with a semicircular, central wine bar and modern lighting, this stylish restaurant sits amid pawn shops and bail-bond outposts on a quiet, unprepossessing side street Downtown. But once inside, you'll find a sophisticated, colorful space serving memorable, modern renditions of classic American fare, such as fried chicken and meat loaf. The starters are notable, including grilled sesame-crusted ahi with wasabi cream, and bruschetta topped with honey-cured ham and Brie. Banana-stuffed brioche French toast is a favorite at breakfast and weekend brunch. More than 25 wines by the glass are served.
