Description

A topaz-tinted beacon for suburbanites seeking approachable fine dining, this elegant spot offers a menu with something for everyone. Housemade gnocchi with a sauté of Italian sausage, peas, and mushrooms vies with grilled Spanish calamari with garbanzo beans and chorizo vinaigrette as enticing Med-accented appetizers. Juicy lamb chops in currant sauce with parsnip purée is a terrific entrée choice; snag the scrumptious chocolate lava cake to end. Good, fairly priced wine selection and a lovely patio enhance the meal.
