Eleven Forty Nine Restaurant Review: Eleven Forty Nine claims to be a "full service metropolitan restaurant set in a hip, suburban location" but doesn’t always follow through. The restaurant is located across from a highway exit ramp, and at times in the past we've found the food and service veering toward the breakdown lane. Recent visits have been better, however. The margherita pizza is enjoyable, and a cider-brined pork chop is moist and flavorful. We like the inventive à la carte sides, as well: leek and manchego mac ‘n’ cheese or sweet potato and carrot mash, for example. Dessert, a flourless chocolate torte, is sweet redemption even when entrées sometimes fall short. The lively after-work bar scene may help you overlook any flaws.
