$$ Hillcrest Modern American Fodor's Choice

Fodor’s Expert Review

Old-school wood-fire techniques meet modern architecture in this busy bistro where comic book–style art covers the concrete walls and the bottle-lined bar beckons locals and visitors alike. Dishes feature popular items like the braised oxtail raviolini with horseradish and whipped ricotta, and wood-grilled cauliflower dressed in a curry vinaigrette. The merguez-stuffed lamb is a dining event of epic proportions—it's an entrée for two that's served with roasted root vegetables and confit potatoes. Save room for dessert, particularly the profiteroles piped with feather-soft cream and drizzled in caramel.
