THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Hot Spot Restaurant Review

: Modern-minded diners get an eyeful at this colorful, come-as-you-are eatery, which is decked in lime, lemon and orange hues. The menu, too, is far from ordinary. First thing, there's tender carne asada with two yolks and hunks of oven-browned potatoes, and delightful lingonberry-sour cream pancakes topped with butter. Fresh-squeezed OJ is the perfect accompaniment. Later, it's on to cheddar, Swiss, provolone and tomato grilled cheese on sourdough; a grilled portobello sandwich on ciabatta with goat cheese and pesto; and a turkey burger topped with grilled pineapple and roasted red pepper. Looking for something more classic? Cozy up to the tuna melt on marbled rye.
