THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED MINX Restaurant & Lounge Restaurant Review

: With its electric blue nighttime lights and a large, sail-covered patio just begging for crowds of imbibing revelers, the nightclub-esque exterior of this Hollywood-style restaurant and lounge belies the polished, sophisticated interior dining room. Equipped with sleek stonework, hanging light bulbs, glossy wood finishes and modern architectural accents, this restaurant-by-day, club-by-night features New American/California cuisine by chef Geovanny Delgado. His lunch menu offers standards with creative twists: a caprese salad that substitutes a flavorful goat cheese pinenut fritter for the expected mozzarella, and a smoked salmon "BLT" with dill caper aïoli, avocado mousse and applewood smoked bacon. Seasonal ingredients are also a focus, and appear in dishes like kabocha and pumpkin ravioli served with candied pumpkin seeds and chestnut brown butter sauce. Main dishes mostly cater to carnivores, with a variety of steaks on offer as well as seafood options like black pepper seared Hawaiian ahi tuna with parsnip purée, shallots and grilled asparagus. Be sure to stick around for one of the homey and innovative desserts, such as Dadi's Famous Molten Spiced Dark Chocolate Cake featuring the implied hot fudge-like filling but also an unexpected hint of warm spices. Another stand-out is the Bolle---a satisfyingly rich mascarpone cheesecake with wild berries, walnut crust and maple-coconut sauce.
