Chefs at Brad's Swingside Café team up fresh seafood, wild game, and locally sourced ingredients to craft Italian classics. The menu is a mélange of meat entrees and imported Italian pastas, such as imported linguine costumed in a choice of hazelnut pesto, Sicilian–style white, or red clam sauce ($16 each). The aglio olio is a traditional Italian dish that coats nude noodles in a veneer of bruised garlic cloves and smoked chili peppers, roasted until golden brown in extra virgin olive oil ($18). Alternatively, the fresh seafood putanesca (market price) smothers linguine in deep blue's bounty, with specific seafood accompaniments that, like a carousel or a sundial, rotate daily.
Liquid kicks lay just beyond the table's edge at the café, with servers merrily pairing plates with red and white wines by the glass ($8 each). The chefs select each evenings assortment from a collection of nearly 500 varietals and blends listed on a wine list that doubles as 2011's list of the hottest pet-falcon names.
