THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Mosaic Restaurant Review

: Mosaic’s move to larger quarters directly on the downtown’s main drag, Washington Avenue, makes outdoor dining viable, and it’s a popular place from which to watch the nightclub-hopping scene drift by. The evening bar crowd leans to the young and the restless, many of them from the neighborhood’s lofts. During your tapas-style feast, plan on items like a tasting of three soups, a dab of very competent risotto, pot stickers and a lamb “saltimbocca” with artichoke purée and soft herbed polenta. Servers and the kitchen are used to orders coming in waves, so it's easy to start with a few dishes and continue with more when those are finished. A four-course menu is offered on Tuesdays.
