Entrees, such as the snow-crab ravioli, prepared with cream cheese and a sun-dried-tomato-cream sauce, envelope tongue buds in luxury as velvety as the Mongols' haute couture line of change purses ($22.50). Pan-roasted chicken breast arrives robed in prosciutto and prepped for a gracious dive in garlic-thyme au jus ($24). Wood-oven baked pizzas are painted in shades ranging from minimalist margherita to the stomach-saturating meatza, topped with pepperoni, ground beef, chorizo sausage, and banana pepper ($11.50–$16.50).
In less blustery boreal months, a private patio provides a sunny spot for snacking or staring into the sun. Those wishing to prolong an enjoyable evening can head over to the adjacent Red Cactus bar and marinate in live music and drinks.
