J House Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Polished wood floors and rich brown leather banquettes create a casually upscale setting for an inventive menu of New American fare at this contemporary hotel restaurant that manages to be trendy and relaxed at the same time. Start off light and refreshing with red and yellow heirloom tomato gazpacho and the sweet potato wedges with tri-color cauliflower, Tuscan kale and pink Muscat grapes. Then try one of the home-style pastas, such as the eggplant lasagna or the flavorful spinach farfalle with house-smoked salmon, wild mushrooms, capers and baby arugula. For a savory seafood selection, opt for the diver scallops with sweet pea risotto, grilled asparagus and shaved black truffle. The wine cellar houses Old and New World varietals including unoaked Chardonnays and sparkling rosé's by the glass, providing numerous pairing possibilities. Go for the sorbets and gelatos made in-house or fresh-baked cookies with a cappuccino before you call it a night.
