La Riviera Restaurant and Bakery
Led by decorated chef Alfonso Gonzalez, La Riviera Restaurant hushes outspoken stomachs with an eclectic array of creative, upscale fare. Daytime masticators may enjoy lunch-menu stars such as the tilapia Manzanillo ($11), awash in crabmeat salsa and lemony white-wine sauce. The dinner menu previews edibles such as the semiboneless maple-glazed quail appetizer ($7), grilled and dressed in a haute couture green-apple slaw before joining forces with a straight-shooting side of cheddar grits. The seafood-stuffed salmon ($17) arrives, like a merman's teddy bear, packed with shrimp, scallops, crab, and veggies and painted with a white-wine butter sauce.
