Ya Ya's Euro Bistro Restaurant Review

: While the exterior resembles one of those big-box stores in a suburban shopping center, the interior --- great stone pillars, faux-stone walls and huge wrought iron chandeliers --- mimics the inside of a European castle. The large balcony (overlooking a pond and fountain) is a lovely spot for summer dining and people-watching. During lunch, the dining room, flanked by an open kitchen, is full of corporate power brokers; at dinner and on Sundays, it's chock-block with locals enjoying a meal and talking table to table. Dishes have included a creamy lobster and rock shrimp risotto, and oak-roasted chicken with porcini-and-sweet corn gnocchi in a lemon-thyme broth. Wood-fired pizzas are a specialty; try the version topped with house-cured Italian sausage, smoked mozzarella, arugula, roasted peppers and caramelized red onions. We also like the oven-roasted fish; it might be salmon, sea bass or trout. Plan to share because portions are very large. The wine list is extensive and well-priced, and if you order by the glass, the wine is poured at your table so you can see your selection. Service is friendly and relaxed.
