Cure Bar & Bistro Restaurant Review

: Cure Bar & Bistro’s front-and-center location in a hotel that prides itself on big-time conventions produces its constant buzz. The name is a dead giveaway, and indeed house-cured meats star on the short-but-sweet menu. Start with the bacon mac ‘n’ cheese or the potato salad with turkey chorizo sausage at lunch, and find several small-plate offerings to fill out the meal. Want heartier fare? The chef takes delight in parading a host of comfort foods at dinnertime, from chicken noodle soup to start to roasted pork shoulder for the main course. Desserts are just as all-American, with coconut cake or strawberry shortcake among the choices.
