Amid charming overhead strings of lights, warm earth-toned colors, and sunny, full-sized windows, visitors to It’s a Matter of Taste happily sup upon dishes of eclectic and upscale bistro cuisine. At lunchtime, plates of chicken Waldorf salad with crisp lettuce ($11) unite a plethora of palatable textures and flavors, while Chef Mark’s signature burger ($10) classes up a quintessential slice of Americana with ground aged steak, signature sauce, white cheddar, and a Standard Oil stock certificate to be used as a napkin. Dinner meals also enrapture taste buds with pasta dishes such as the house-made forest mushroom and spinach ravioli ($24), tossed with a plum tomato and pepperoni sauce. Unlike the books of any respectable accounting firm or library, meaty roasts are cooked and present guests with the option of diving into the lamb osso bucco ($24), sided with buttermilk whipped mashed potatoes, asparagus, and baby carrots. Seafood dishes, such as the Schezuan peppered crusted salmon ($24), melt in the mouth with fresh, light flavor as diners cast long glances across waterfront views to the picturesque lake.
It’s A Matter Of Taste
It’s A Matter Of Taste re-creates rustic Italian meals with a menu that showcases the nation’s three most prominent food groups: pasta, seafood, and steak. From the tender gnocchi to raviolis filled with chicken and veal, chefs fashion many of the pastas in-house to ensure fresh, authentic flavors. The upscale cuisine matches an elegant interior with wrought-iron accents and a patio overlooking Union Lake that opens the dining room to natural sunlight and tugboat calls.
