The menu includes appetizers such as lobster israeli cous cous ($17), salads, and entrees such as lamb shank braised for hours with crimini mushrooms, plum tomatoes, and roasted mirepoix ($25), as well as pan-seared scallops ($27) and a duck foie gras sausage tossed with roasted duck cavatelli pasta, shiitake mushrooms, and a sage butter sauce ($24.25).
Upscale American cuisine unites with an extensive wine list at Wylds Cafe, and it's all administered by a talented kitchen staff. Their menu catalogs elegant entrees such as peppered Hawaiian tuna with sweet potato chips and soy butter sauce garnished with pickled ginger and wasabi. They also prepare braised cranberry barbecue boneless short ribs. Both the wine menu and the 30-strong beer list showcase imported and domestic libations, from The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc originating in New Zealand to Flying Dog's Doggy-Style pale ale. When it comes to aesthetics, the restaurant matches the cuisine in its panache. Rich but dark reds and browns cover the walls and allow blue sconces and colorful paintings—both abstract and grounded in everyday scenery—to pop with vivacity. White linens drape the tables, and track lighting precludes interruption by an obstreperous genie.
