Whether you're grabbing a cocktail at the bar, sharing a few appetizers with friends on the treehouse-like outdoor patio, or settling in to one of the elegant-yet-cozy booths for a romantic dinner with your honey, this Bryker Woods locale serves up a satisfying lineup of fresh, Italian-inspired fare. Top picks from the popular picolo piatti (small plates) menu include scallop crudo with butternut squash and thinly sliced zucchini involtini wrapped around a decadent
mushroom filling. Sunday dinners feature a four-course prix fixe menu ($29) that offers seasonal samplings, like hake with Texas red beans and cabbage, which helps stave off the Monday blues. Save room for the homemade gelato.
