THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mitra Restaurant Review

: Owner Sia Moshk, who carried fine dining to the 'burbs at his eponymous Sia's, named this restaurant for his wife, who also did the design work. We like the snappy interior, which takes an industrial cue from its garage bay-style fenestration along one side. The kitchen offers a Latin American menu, drawing its dishes from Mexico to the tip of Patagonia. The crisp, sweet calamari, interspersed with fresh cilantro leaves, are best if ordered with the sauces on the side so the breading doesn’t become soggy and the flavor of the sweet morsels clouded with extraneous notes. We also recommend executive chef Rogerio Martins’ purple potato soup, topped with a few shiitake mushrooms. Steak with chimichurri sauce, braised short ribs and paella mark the menu’s main-plate highlights. An extensive bar menu supplements the small-plates menu. Desserts gather flavors from disparate culinary traditions, with panna cotta (get rid of the whipped cream on top and just go with the fruit) a fine ending. The adventurous wine list has a lot going for it, including plenty of offerings by the glass.
