Though a dessert display case, rustic wooden tables, and exposed-brick walls ground this eatery's casual neighborhood appeal, the food at Lillies remains decidedly upscale but still approachable. A team of chefs draw from Italian culinary traditions when crafting Mediterranean seasonal dishes—including gourmet pastas, roasted lamb, and gourmet eggs benedict—trumped up with demi-glaces and aiolis. Bartenders concoct cocktails and martinis in between pouring international beers and wine to complement the cuisine's distinctive flavors. During warmer months, guests can enjoy their meals on the patio, where Mediterranean touches, including indigo mosaic-tiled tables and olive-oil waterfalls, reflect the cuisine’s heritage.
