Twisted Tomato Kitchen
Michelle and Jason Troll's vision of Italian-fusion cuisine begins with their menu, which surprises diners with traditional dishes such as macaroni 'n' cheese reinterpreted with premium ingredients that range from Atlantic lobster to wild mushrooms. This fusion of traditional and modern continues into the dining room, where sumptuous red booths and curtains create a textural contrast with exposed-brick accents, ornate chandeliers, and slate floors. The Trolls expanded on that theme by creating a space that flexes seamlessly between upscale dining establishment and local gathering place. Bartenders pour guests a drink, and then encourage them to check out the 75-seat rooftop patio, which affords views of the cityscape and hungry hot air balloon captains who snatch at the eatery's come-hither bowls of fettuccini. The atmosphere livens up all the more on the weekend, when a DJ sates the music-hungry by spinning a live set.
