To the Wind Bistro Restaurant Review:


Chef Royce Oliveira, along with his wife Leanne Adamson, preside over this City Park jewel that's roughly the size of a walk-in closet. Nonetheless, the couple have made the most of the adorable space, elevating the small dining room with colorful art and handcrafted tables, while bordering the open kitchen with a handful of stools that peer into Oliveira's culinary landscape. His season-driven menu, which changes like the wind, is full of options such as panzanella salad punctuated with heirloom tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella; foie gras au torchon bolstered with blood plums and walnuts; a carbonara with barley, carrots, peas and smoked mushroom duxelle; and a duo of pork, including tenderloin and Berkshire ribs. Order as many dishes as you desire, pair them with a craft beer from the notable selection (the wine list, albeit tiny, is lovely, too) and finish with a banana-rum cake, courtesy of Adamson, who is also a pastry chef.
