Amid elegant, wood-paneled furnishings, chef Alain Ribiere mixes and matches flavors and styles from contemporary Mediterranean and American cuisines, earning acclaim from Zagat. The prix fixe menu—which can change daily, weekly, or on the full moon—makes diners’ acquaintance with a choice of soup, salad, or appetizer; recent offerings include baked clams casino and a baby spinach salad with blueberries and goat cheese. The scallop risotto entree teams up fresh tomatoes and savory saffron risotto with pan-seared sea scallops and green peas in a deftly drizzled lobster sauce. Slowly braised in a merlot sauce, a tender lamb shank and its neighboring caramelized vegetables have a block party in diners’ mouths, while whole-wheat penne and shitake mushrooms flirt with fresh mozzarella, basil, and a bevy of veggies in the tuscan vegetarian pasta.
An assortment of rich sweets high-kicks tongues with a sugary grand finale to meal extravaganzas. Recent seasonal selections, such as blueberry cobbler and fresh fruit parfaits, come packed with tooth-tingling fruit fillings.
