THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Travis Restaurant Review

: There’s a bistro look to Travis, with lots of lean, clean lines, salmon-hued tile, sculpted flowers and much glass art. French-style paintings adorn the walls and linen tablecloths and napkins cover the tables. Travis is a popular spot for business lunches. The menu changes every three-to-four months, and it’s a constant experiment. For an appetizer, try the kim chee (only made with cucumbers instead of cabbage) or the stir-fried shiitake mushrooms with pickled ginger and wasabi. The appetizers always include escargot! This summer, it’s escargot puff pastry pot pie with cream, ham and cheese. One of the most popular entrĂ©es is the filet mignon topped with a creamy bleu cheese with crabmeat. There’s a wild mushroom ragout. We recommend the seafood lasagna-crab, scallops and shrimp blended with four cheese and layered between spinach pasta with a tomato butter sauce. The Caribbean jerk-style scallops are also good, served with wilted spinach, an Asian glaze and roasted red peppers. Grouper is another constant-coconut-crusted with a horseradish marmalade. Sometimes, the menu includes a grilled Cuban marinated pork with kiwi-chili, pepper-guava chutney. Desserts are all made in-house, from the tiramisu tort to the chocolate chiffon pie to the upside down pecan pies.
