The chefs at 15 Exchange Grille create a casual bistro dining experience with an ever-changing menu of refined European and American classics. A hunt for tender morsels kicks off meals as forks dive for Peekytoe crab hidden in risotto, a dish that's simmered with white wine and fortified with a miniature palisade carved from nutty parmesan. Entrees reveal the kitchen's penchant for bold Mediterranean flavors, as evidenced by shrimp fra diavolo with hand-cut fettuccine in spicy tomato puree and grecian lamb chops, served with goat cheese mashed potatoes, parslied carrots, and a minted pan sauce. The duck a l'orange wallows in Grand Marnier gastrique and, like most birthday presents, arrives on a plate with sweet potatoes and grilled zucchini.

The bistro's exposed brick walls embrace diners in rustic charm and serve as a backdrop for local and international art displays, which are renewed monthly for First Friday Art Walks. Reserve a table by sending 15 Exchange Grille an e-mail or by changing your name to match that of somebody who's already made a reservation.

15 Exchange Grille

Nestled amid the cobblestone streets and independent shops of the Old Port District, 15 Exchange Grille sizzles with an ever-transforming menu of Mediterranean-inspired comfort fare. Each week, chefs whip up sandwiches, pastas, and Mediterranean comfort specialties from the freshest ingredients and market-catch seafood available. Bartenders pair the Levantine comfort food with beer and cocktails from the full bar. Tabletops checker the dining room, backdropped by exposed-brick walls and the enormous portrait of French actress Bridget Bardot staring down from her frame, goading diners into staring contests.
