THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Misto Restaurant Review

: Interesting, isn't it, what transformations can take place in otherwise nondescript locations? When it comes to making a hole-in-the-wall into a warm and welcoming place, Ryan Aiken may just have the formula down pat. Industrial mode notwithstanding, the environment is the noise level, which makes it tough to hear your table-mates. That said, the food is the draw anyway. We shared an opener of thinly shaved bresaola (air-dried beef) which came embellished with a brightly flavored fennel salad. It was so good we asked to have a portion of that just for giggles. We then shared an order of pappardelle and lamb ragĂș, which the kitchen happily divided into two portions with no splitting charge. Well-seasoned and perfectly cooked, the tender lamb and sauce may not have been rigorously authentic, but certainly were in the spirit of Italian cooking. Bread is baked at the restaurant, and it's worth the calories. Nice touch: Butter is room temperature, so you don't have to fight a stone-cold spread. This is a lovely wine list, perfectly priced for a bistro, but we wish the red wines were served a notch cooler. Service is friendly and efficient.
