Bite Restaurant Review

: Bite-size Bite consists of a marble-topped, horseshoe-shaped counter and a few tables surrounded by purple swivel chairs and a shiny orange wall. This all comes across way better than it sounds, especially in the company of Lisa Astorga-Watel’s Euro-centric, contemporary cuisine. Astorga-Watel is the wife of Chez Vatel Bistro’s Damien Watel, but she has a style all her own. Small plates, the restaurant’s focus, run the gamut from a successful phyllo-wrapped “cigar” to earthy lamb stew with rice and a somewhat less laudatory eggplant “waffle” with wild mushrooms. But all show attention to detail and a flair for the original. Take notice of the specials board; it changes frequently. Though the wine list is minimal, cocktails have improved immensely. We suggest a Southtown Sazerac or the delicate blackberry lavender smash.
