THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Landmark Grill + Lounge Restaurant Review

: We---like many---can’t get enough of the food at this stylish spot. But the space---which is the site of a former candle factory---is pretty sleek, too. It’s a scene, especially late-night, but that doesn’t take away from the chef-driven approach and seasonal, locally-culled appeal of dishes turned out from the kitchen of this BOKA sib. The menu changes, but we’ve found ourselves enamored with the silky, savory-sweet chestnut soup as well as the comforting braised short ribs lacquered with sweet soy glaze. Sweet corn tart with bacon, jalapeño and Gouda dressed with anise is an appealing surprise. It’s easy to nibble your way through a meal with options like cracked pepper polenta fries with truffled ranch, smoked ravioli with braised pork belly in cocoa jus and latkes crowned with smoked salmon and dill cream. As a finale, the warm cider doughnut sundae is enough to ward off the briskest of chills. Creative cocktails, a good grill menu and a nice, affordable wine selection only further the appeal.
