Bravo! Bistro's menu highlights local, organic produce and fresh seafood with help from the capable hands of co-owner and chef Tony Hamati, whose epicurean seeds were planted at the Culinary School of Jordan and the Sorbonne in Paris. Tickle tummies with the popular hummus and pita before shoving back head-rearing hunger with firm-handed forks and ricotta-and-spinach-stuffed eggplant. The veal ossobuco melts mouths with a moist veal shank, braised vegetables, and a saffron-infused risotto. Crunch through the lemon-black-pepper-encrusted, pan-seared salmon, or inquire about the fish of the day, flown in daily in the pouches of trustworthy pelicans.
Palates test their decision-making skills with glasses of Macon Villages chardonnay or a Bennett Lane white poured from a 47-bottle wine list, which includes varietals from California, Italy, Germany, and Australia. The buttery yellow building greets patrons with European-style columns and a large balcony accented by burgundy awnings. Grab a stool at the bar for a pre-meal drink or to hide from clingy table napkins.
