Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails Restaurant Review

: Chef Janos Wilder’s chic, sexy restaurant continues to surprise and delight diners with longtime favorite dishes, as well as new and exciting plates. In high season, there is the "Sense of Place" menu, a three-course dinner that focuses on local and foraged ingredients. It changes over the months, but you might find frog wings, a playful take in which frogs legs are prepped and presented similar to chicken wings. From the regular line-up, you can’t go wrong with the house hamburger topped with bacon, foie gras, mushrooms, manchego and caramelized onions. A dish we almost always order is the Lily’s Laotian Chicken + Pounded Green Papaya Salad that has the fresh flavors of mango, mint and basil, heat from serrano chiles and the crunch of peanuts. For the heartier appetite, there’s the grilled rib-eye with Madeira mushrooms, leeks and tomatoes served with a side of garlic fries. Locals know, though, that in the summer months, Wilder presents a three-course "world tour" menu that focuses on faraway places. And don’t forget the J Dawg, a kicked-up version of Mexican street hot dogs, available at the bar.
