THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Horizon Restaurant Review

: Warm burgundy and green in patterns and solid colors invite guests to relax a minute in plush seating at the front door of this casual neighborhood bistro. A long upholstered banquette slides along the far wall. Owner Frata Elidrissi has quickly transformed this space into his own vision, following the closing of New Indigo. Manager Christian Dudugnon sees to the warm greeting and keeps tabs on guests with his unobtrusive presence. The menu offers several ways to address dining at Horizon. A short tapas menu, with all items priced at or under $5, allows for quick, light bites. A pair of grilled lemon-garlic shrimp rest atop a shallow dish of canellini beans infused with basil is a good choice from this menu. The pistachio-crusted goat cheese salad with truffled vinaigrette is a winner, perfect with a glass of Cuevas de Castilla Rueda. The entire menu features intense flavors but light preparations, such as a pan-roasted red snapper on Swiss chard with an orange glaze. In this case, the orange glaze is a bit heavy for the dish, overwhelming the delicate snapper. But the fresh fish and the crunchy chard make a delectable combination. The wine list offers decent selections, with some by the glass, and tries to steer clear of the mundane while keeping prices affordable.
