Citysearch Editorial Review.
This bistro emphasizes care over boisterousness, fastidiousness over clamor, and clean lines and mirrors over burnished brass and jumbled seating. An aisle separates two long strips of perfectly spaced, linen-covered tables. A smattering of unobtrusive pictures hangs above the red-cushioned booths that line the walls. The seasonal Mediterranean dinner menu features equal parts French and Italian influences: braised rabbit, lasagna with greenmarket ingredients, roast baby chicken, corn tagliatelle. The flavors go wider at brunch--including spicy pulled chicken with handmade tortilla chips and chili rellenos poblano peppers topped with fried eggs--but the graceful, low-key atmosphere remains.
