320 Main Restaurant Review

: Earthy, cozy confines and a sleek bar where patrons can gather while the game plays on the flat-screen TV above give 320 Main a neighborhood-hangout vibe. But the food and drinks go beyond the traditional. The cocktail program boasts handcrafted libations that taste as good as they look, ranging from a classic Moscow Mule to a sweet vermouth and grapefruit concoction known as The Iggy. Executive chef Jaime Carrano, who has worked in the kitchens of Bouchon in Beverly Hills and Aureole in New York, created a tight, contemporary menu that showcases his mettle in a way that feels accessible and not forced. Starters showcase this flair by way of bone marrow Wellington with mushroom stuffing; shredded duck fries with mozzarella cheese curd; and lobster mac 'n' cheese. Carrano's creativity shines through the entrées as well, with seared diver scallops with mushroom risotto; bacon chop with potato pancake and apple-rhubarb sauce; and braised short rib with cheese grits and roasted heirloom carrots. Finish with a dessert like the brown sugar cake. Weekend brunch offerings do a great job of connecting the first and second meals of the day --- think corn flake-coated fried chicken with french toast and short rib and potato hash.
