Nighttown Restaurant Review

: Named after the red light district in James Joyce’s Ulysses, Nighttown features live music and livelier food seven days a week. Tiffany-style lamps cast flattering light while dark, wood-paneled walls are lined with stained glass panels and collectible clutter. It's just up the hill from University Circle and Little Italy, so you can expect a diverse crowd. The food --- served in surprisingly hearty portions --- is primarily American. Start with the pancetta shrimp served with a tangy caper vinaigrette and garlic bread, followed by the bangers and mash or the flat-iron steak with a rich whiskey bordelaise. For dessert, if you’re not sipping a Cognac, small batch bourbon or single malt scotch, try the turtle pie sundae. It's homemade and topped with a generous helping of vanilla ice cream.
