THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS The Dodo Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Unlikely to meet the sad fate of its namesake bird, this quirky, unpretentious restaurant tucked next to a parking garage has huge heart but a slightly wacky take on dining that seems to work best at brunch or lunch. Appetizers include a pie of artichoke hearts, cheddar cheese and onions; crab-and-asparagus cakes; and gravlax and cream cheese. Such unusual pairings raise question marks yet slide satisfyingly into the stomach. Try the Dodo herbed chicken over mornay pasta, which features large breast tenders; or the honey-mustard baked Atlantic salmon. Unfortunately, the pan-fried steak can be a little too pan-fried and the veggie medley can have an overcooked, soggy texture. Chunky, garlicky mashed potatoes redeem the day with a perfect balance of textures. We also sometimes feel the urge to go straight to dessert here, especially after a movie, tucking happily into a long list of delights---including a gooey, sinfully sweet Tollhouse Pie---made by their own in-house pastry chef.
