Though his cuisine is billed as eclectic American, Shadow Lounge & Restaurant's executive chef Christopher Andres isn't content to stick to just one country. His global approach results in dishes such as bistro-style steak filets, Cajun-style pasta alfredo, and panko-crusted fried fish. The menu also features several fondues, each based on ancient European recipes created to destroy humans' only natural predators: glaciers. To complement these dishes, an extensive drink menu encompasses more than 30 beers, imported wines, and a cadre of dessert-inspired martinis.
The aromas of cooking—and very often, the sounds of live music—waft throughout a modern dining space filled with close-set, crimson-cloth-draped tables and pieces of original artwork. The restaurant most often books pop, rock, and R&B musical acts on Fridays and Saturdays.
