717 South Restaurant Review

: The distinctive, trendy style and menu of 717 South have served it well. For lunch, there are the daily chef's sandwich selections as well as a smoked salmon pita and veal meatloaf on an Italian hoagie with pomodoro sauce. Dinnertime offerings include the Chicken Firenze, grilled breast of chicken with spinach, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, béchamel and Fontina. The catch of the day is spiced up with makrut lime beurre blanc and edamame salsa, and served with mashed wasabi Yukon Gold potatoes. Other creative selections reflect Pacific Rim tastes, like Szechwan duck breast paired with vegetables and jalapeño sweet potato mash. A wide selection of domestic and imported beers plus teas is available. Desserts achieve the same level of creativity and vary by the evening.
