Aalto Lounge Restaurant Review

: Named after mid-century Finnish architect Alvar Aalto, this hip lounge features the Scandinavian-style design for which he was famous. It's primarily a bar with a French dominated wine list featuring wines available by the glass, along with beer and creative cocktails such as Serrano-infused vodka with pineapple and lemon juice. The menu is simple --- mac ‘n’ cheese, roasted vegetable pasta, baked pretzels, artichoke dip --- but well executed and inexpensive. You can't beat the value of a grilled cheese and tomato soup combo for $2. Genial staff is always relaxed and glad to see you. Late nights, the place gets busier and louder with DJs providing music from 9 p.m. until closing. On dry days, the back garden is an enjoyable place to dine al fresco.
