THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Harbor Court Bistro Restaurant Review

: Taking over the cavernous space previously occupied by Palomino and the short-lived Cassis, Harbor Court Bistro exudes a trendy and hospitable vibe. The first restaurant of owner Elizabeth Watanabe (her other establishment is a nightclub-lounge), she has pulled out all the stops in an effort to create a lasting impression with over-the-top dishes. Talented Alexio Thomas Corleon is the chef behind the menu and the flavor combinations can be overwhelming or exhilarating depending on your tastes. The Isabella del Mar appetizer is a frenzy of fried calamari and okra with olives and lemon slices served up with a sweet lilikoi dipping sauce---inventive yet maybe a bit too cross cultural. Other dishes that strike an unusual chord include seasoned edamame with furikake and mochi crunch and steak fries with banana ketchup. More reliable are the grilled meat dishes and the soups. Friday happy hour draws a sophisticated crowd, the drinks are cold and well mixed, and the live music will make your weekday woes melt away in a wink of an eye.
