Bite Restaurant Review

: Diminutive Bite consists of a marble-topped, horseshoe-shaped counter and a few tables surrounded by purple swivel chairs and a shiny orange wall. This all comes across way better than it sounds, especially in the company of Lisa Astorga-Watel’s Euro-centric, contemporary cuisine. Astorga-Watel is the wife of Bistro Vatel’s Damien Watel, but she has a style all her own. Small plates, the restaurant’s focus, run the gamut from a successful octopus carpaccio to a somewhat less laudatory lamb chop Provençale, but all show attention to detail and a flair for the original. Take notice of the specials board that has included a cazuela marina packed with fresh seafood and topped with phyllo, and look to the waiter/bartender for a simpler drink than the fussy cocktails listed as specials.
