Light Bistro Restaurant Review

: Light Bistro balances small-plate options with more hearty main dishes, and with chef Matthew Mathlage behind the line, regional and seasonal concepts are the focus. Start with the honey ham and cheddar croquettes served with a smooth, rich romesco sauce. Follow with the albondigas pizza, and don’t miss the gnocchi with kale and the Ohio rib-eye. The nightly chef’s tasting menu highlights the choicest ingredients of the day, making it an ideal way to experience Mathlage’s skills. The wine list is well-crafted with a solid range of by-the-glass options. Lunch offers more casual fare. Our favorite dessert is the chocolate molten lava cake.
