Best Neighborhood Restaurant
If only every enclave could have a place like this. The menu takes its inspiration from the cuisines of the western Mediterranean, but owner Steve Johnson buys most of his produce, fish, and even meat from people he considers neighbors. Plates such as crispy roasted chicken with baby Brussels sprouts and sauteed cod with braised artichokes are refreshingly straightforward. The service is warm and the mood is happy, as though you're dining with friends you haven't met yet.
