To an uninitiated visitor, Mumbles Restaurant would seem to suffer from a crisis of identity. The dark-wood baseboard molding and bar, vintage posters, and candlelit dining room evoke an old-fashioned ambiance ostensibly at odds with a menu of innovative, contemporary fare. Stick around for a while, though, and these anachronistic elements will begin to blend into a harmonious experience. While candles flicker beside glasses of reserve wine in the lively dining room, chefs sprinkle fresh salmon with pecan crumbles and lay pork chops over beds of chipotle mashed potatoes. The menu also features sandwiches, pastas, thin-crust pizzas, and chef’s specials that rotate as frequently as a jet-powered ferris wheel.
