THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Dish Restaurant Review

: Getting a table at this intimate bistro with a hip, casual vibe, tucked in the back of The RumRunner liquor and wine store, requires patience and persistence as there are only about thirty seats altogether. Saffron mussels are a must, and with a bottle of wine from the store (opened for a small corkage fee) one could walk away happy and well-sated. But why short yourself? For starters we like the long-stemmed artichoke hearts partnered with creamy polenta. Pan-roasted chicken has buttery sage-laced pan drippings and practically falls off the bone; paired with criminis, cipollinis, asparagus and mashed potatoes you’ll have yourself a classic meal. Meanwhile, crispy onion-wrapped lamb finds plate mates of cauliflower couscous, red spinach and chèvre. Desserts are artfully presented and range from a traditional vanilla crème brûlée to a caramel cheesecake served with rum-spiced grilled peaches.
