Much of the menu presented a conundrum -- the winter vegetable soup sounded wonderful, but with pancetta-granola? A roasted beet salad is always a crowd pleaser, but with black olives? Even the cocktail menu, a happy place for me generally, offered mixes with bourbon, which would then be topped off with ... sparkling wine.
Our server, who was pleasant and seemingly smart, when asked about "what was good here," directed us to the most frequently ordered options. Well, okay, we'll sign up for the lemming plan. As it turns out, the gnocchi parisienne, which can be ordered as a starter or main dish, was pretty amazing.
