$20 for $40 Worth of New American Cuisine and Drinks
The upscale American dishes range from small plates such as roasted-tomato soup with goat-cheese croutons for $7 to large plates such as applewood-smoked filet mignon with Maine lobster for $32 or scallops with lobster risotto and caviar beurre blanc for $26. Along with an extensive wine list (6 oz. glasses start at $6), drinks include cocktails such as apple cider spiked with calvados apple brandy for $8.
As part of their focus on local sustainability, the chefs at Chato Brasserie rotate their menu seasonally, constantly updating the menu of classic American cuisine with ingredients ranging from fresh tilefish to sweet-potato purées. Voted Best New Restaurant in 2011 by CityScope magazine, the eatery complements its casual dining room with both an outdoor patio and a private chef's table, where patrons dig in to a personalized tasting menu with exclusive tastings from the wine list. Drinks are always part of the Chato experience, however, as bartenders craft a variety of smooth brunch and dinner cocktails.
