Bar-Code Restaurant Review

: Bar-Code’s setting is sleekly elegant, the selection of wines and beers is extensive, and happy hours ultimately lead to nightlife activities. But for many guests the real draw is the food, from a small-plate fresh tuna ceviche and cheese-enriched artichoke dip to pizzas, pastas, sandwiches and big-plate entrées: how about grilled lamb chops or grilled salmon? For dessert, if the caramel cheesecake is on the menu, great, but if not, your other choices may be a chocolate lava cake or a Nutella pizza. If you sit at the bar, you will have a fine view of the sportscasting from overhead TVs.
