Radial Cafe Restaurant Review: Crowds descend daily on Radial Café, which has “Green Restaurant” status, although neighborhood denizens favor it particularly for weekend brunch, as well as for the family-friendly attitude and the favorable prices. We like the breakfast menu with its pancakes and big slices of challah-based french toast with either pure maple syrup or a house-made fruit sauce (strawberry and rhubarb). Weekday menus focus more on sandwiches, including a dinnertime Sloppy Joe made with brisket. Vegetarians and vegans are warmly attended, with multiple offerings. The dinner menu reaches to Southern classics, including Georgia trout with a chorizo-cornbread stuffing, swordfish with polenta, and "Fifty Shades of Pork," with multiple pork-based items on the plate. Desserts recall tradition, too, with a caramel cake like your Grandma used to make; vegans (and others) should note the vegan chocolate cake. A short but sensibly priced wine list and a brief beer menu with lots of local options round out the quaffs. Monday through Friday kids eat free (one free kid meal per adult order).
