Floataway Cafe Restaurant Review:

Artwork and brushed tin soften the stainless steel and chrome accents that set the stage for Floataway Café. Chef-owners Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison, whose Star Provisions empire includes Bacchanalia, have kept a busy pace at this casual but refined establishment. On-site executive chef Travis Hawthorne keeps the details firmly focused. French, Mediterranean and Italian influences inspire the cuisine. Locally grown organic produce, some of it from the Quatrano family farm, is featured in the dishes, which are usually seasonal. If beets are on the menu, do not miss them; typically, they’re simply roasted and daubed with creamy goat cheese and adorned with boiled egg or perhaps avocado. If duo dining, share the ricotta gnocchi as a starter; it's a main plate, but a half portion is perfect for beginning the meal. They're plump, tender and adorned with mushrooms and Swiss chard. Larger plates include a generous lamb shank and sliced chicken thighs atop butternut squash purée and bok choy. Hanger steak goes South American with a side of chimichurri sauce. Desserts, which change seasonally as well, might include a fine warm toffee pudding, and cheese is always an option. A refreshingly reasonable wine list offers unique bottles from around the world, with many of them available by the glass. There are also cocktails and an eclectic beer selection.
