Arlequin Cafe & Food To Go Restaurant Review

: This casual spot with counter service boasts an Italian quarry tile stand-up eating bar, a modern California-Provençal setting, and a varied menu that accommodates a light meal, quick snack or simple take-out. Arlequin Wine Merchant next door offers frequent tastings and wines by the glass. You're encouraged to move between the two joints and enjoy sips and snacks. When you finally sit down for food, do it outside if the weather's good --- the back garden is a neighborhood treasure. Try the grilled sandwiches that remind us of Europe: The croque Arlequin (ham, Gruyère and Dijon) or the bacon, Vermont cheddar and grilled pear are good bets. Pastries, cold sandwiches, salads and specialty cheeses sold by the ounce round out the menu. To finish, try the house-made ice creams, sorbets and frozen yogurts, especially the ginger frozen yogurt or the tangerine sorbet if it's available.
