Critic’s Notes

Arbor is the new breed of restaurant that has its own courtyard garden and rooftop apiary. The eclectic space, a glassed-in room on the second floor of LEED-certified Green Exchange, is perfect for chef Leonard Hollander’s creative personalized prix fixe menus (three, five, and seven courses; $45 to $100). An enthusiastic staff cannot stop expressing their excitement over singular dishes such as cocoa-and-espresso-dusted pork loin with strips of Ibérico chorizo atop cheddar grits and collard greens. Neither can patrons. Pay attention to the offbeat, small-producer wine pairings.
