Maple Ave Restaurant Restaurant Review

: With a set-up of nine or so tables accommodating maybe 20 customers, Maple Ave Restaurant may well be the smallest eatery in the metro area. But even if you have to wait for one of those coveted seats, you will be glad you did (hint: call ahead for reservations). The chef strives to source all his ingredients locally and makes everything from scratch. That said, the food’s appeal is obvious: flavors are sharp, clean and natural. Divided into small plates and main plates, the menu offers patrons a chance to limit their intake, such as ordering only the bright apple salad with blue cheese (most likely a seasonal dish) or to indulge in slightly heartier fare, such as the panko chicken sandwich with cheddar. Dinnertime mains might include seared scallops on a coconut risotto or a lamb stew. There’s a short list of wines and other alcoholic beverages, and an even briefer line-up of sweets, which include yuzu lime pie.
