This newly opened eatery serves up sophisticated American comfort fare to pacify rowdy panini proponents and calm belligerent burger bellies. The lengthy menu introduces diners to the concept of a dessertitzer with a starter of sweet potato fries and melted marshmallow that excites eclectic esophagi and evokes spin-the-bottle bonfire memories ($8.99). Less romantically awkward mains include the marinated skirt steak panini, kept warm and cozy by a blanket of melted mozzarella ($13.99). Pescetarians and patrons with a flare for fish fauna can shake hands with twin lobster tails, showered with seasoned breadcrumbs and butter ($25.99), while meatier mouths can munch on the mixed grill’s trifecta of marinated chicken, skirt steak, and grilled shrimp ($25.99). Bring along hungry sprouts ages 10 and younger who will be welcomed with their own list of kid-friendly fare (under $6) and are allowed to eat for free Sunday–Thursday, the best days for encouraging growth spurts. A stage with live musical acts, occasional karaoke, and a dance floor make Arthur Avenue perfect for evening enthusiasts, wannabe divas, and fans of semi-coordinated foot shuffles.
