The atmosphere at Gizzi's hums with a perfectly calibrated balance of lively music and intimate conversation fueled by eclectic, upscale American dishes and expertly mixed cocktails. High-backed booths, brick walls, and a flat-screen television surround guests as they chat over lemon-and-lime-marinated shrimp ceviche and delicate but filling salads that toss beds of mixed greens or arugula with pears, walnuts, or fried shrimp. Flame-kissed skirt steaks mingle with Achuk Chuchuk salade, as well as lamb chops that just leapt off the sizzling grill like a spooked spatula. While socializing over the mixologist's painstakingly shaken and stirred libations, guests can get toes tapping to live music performances scheduled throughout the week, or hone their critic's eye during independent-film screenings held every other Sunday.
