Fodor's Review

Ever-evolving maverick and master chef Janos Wilder returned to the Downtown dining scene a few years ago, delighting city planners striving to energize this district. The menu draws inspiration from warm-weather regions around the world. French technique and Southwestern flavors are fused beautifully in dishes like calamari with mango, roasted peanuts, and green chile vinaigrette, and Cod Veracruzanna (seared cod in onions, tomatoes, jalapeños, capers, and clam juice). The interior, decorated in soft blues and greens and exposed-brick walls, encourages relaxation and quiet conversation. Janos's emphasis on locally grown, organic foods informs the seasonally changing menu, but you can always get his signature J Dawg, a Sonoran hot dog with black beans, bacon, and smoked–poblano chile crema.

downtown kitchen

Recommended by a local I met on the airplane going there it seemed to be a good choice. The appetizer came out cold and their signature beef dish was a low grade cut of something with a lot of fat and gristle. 1 star.
