Cello's Restaurant Review

: This chef-owned restaurant may be lacking a sexy location, but it compensates with its creative and Mediterranean-influenced menu. It also features the area’s only chef’s table. Crab Napoleon is stacked with lump crab meat layered with avocado, onions, tomato, cucumber and lime juice. Chicken Caprese is a signature dish comprising a lightly breaded chicken breast topped with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and basil. The old-school liver and onions is also tailored towards gourmands, with sautéed veal liver, mashed potatoes, caramelized onions, applewood-smoked pepper bacon and seasonal vegetables. The bar-only bistro selections are a good value, with numerous items priced at $10 or less. End your meal with the limoncello tiramisu that's slightly tart. The restaurant also offers a seven-course chef’s choice dining adventure that must be pre-booked.
