Grace Restaurant Review

: The shimmering stained glass and vaulted ceilings will stop you in your tracks before you head to the circular bar for a cocktail and snack before dinner. The bar food surprises, as in a Kaiser Krainer sausage with Emmental and a soft pretzel, or classic deviled eggs dotted with black truffle. Small plates with a French flair shine in dishes like roasted bone marrow with parsley, shallot and lemon or crispy veal sweetbreads with agro dolce. Try crispy potato gnocchi with spruce and mushroom purée, Parmesan and morels for a taste of the forest, or a robust Maine rabbit loin with a rabbit mortadella stuffing, rigatoni and a snappy poached garlic sauce for a taste of the farm. Desserts are a highlight, as in poached plums with lemon grass granité and a corn cake, garnished with popcorn with a brown sugar honey glaze. The wine list is small because creative cocktails are a focus, but you'll find very reasonably priced bottles.
