THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Resto Restaurant Review

: “Resto” may be slang for “restaurant,” but there’s nothing laidback about the food served here. Chef/owner Robert Ubhaus, late of Firebird Russian Restaurant in New York and Bradley Ogden’s Lark Creek Inn in California, brings his talents to the tiny kitchen of Resto with a menu that is memorable for its presentation, taste, and most of all, the artful way the vegetable combinations balance with the protein stars. Slow-cooked breast of pheasant was roasted and accompanied with pheasant sausage and multi-colored lentils; and buttery tender chablis-braised veal short rib was served with a deeply flavored celery root-butternut squash gratin. Resto’s space is cramped, the twenty-six seats crowded close together, yet the convivial staff and the warm décor make the dining experience enjoyable. Desserts are as creative as the main bill of fare with offerings such as peanut butter bread pudding and glistening caramel mousseline, and dark chocolate soufflé with white chocolate ganache and a dollop of house-made peppermint ice cream on the side.
