element 47 Restaurant Review

: Contemporary American cuisine is the focus at element 47, where the kitchen turns out seasonally inspired fare from breakfast through dinner. For a casual meal, take a seat at the bar and sample fine whiskies as you nibble on pickled onion rings or a cheeseburger that might just be worth the hefty price. Or choose a table in either the outdoor garden or posh dining room for a refined experience. Expect to see such elegant dishes as seared foie gras with huckleberries and pistachios, strozzapreti with veal sweetbreads, or carrot fricassée over roasted-garlic pudding. Cocktails and local beers supplement a sumptuous wine list overseen by master sommelier Carlton McCoy.
