How much you like Ciao Vito depends on how challenging you want your meal to be. If the answer is “I really have enough to deal with without enduring the chef’s mission statement,” then this comfortable and polished Italian gem is for you. The tall, tufted banquettes are easy on th   More

Meriwether’s is like that great-looking, well-mannered girl in high school. She’s always appropriately dressed; a solid B-student who’d never dream of slacking but isn’t the type to show off. Which is too bad, because when chef Tommy Habetz does his version of making out bene   More

Lolo is a darling name for a darling place that might as easily call itself Perspicacity, so acute is this new Alberta Street tapas restaurant’s understanding of, well, everything. Open, modern and the color of toffee, it’s a little industrial, a little arty. The servers—young, smi   More

Remember when you were a kid, and your parents asked where you wanted to eat for your birthday, and you said Benihana because it was so cool to see the chef whip the knives and flip the food? Today's tykes and a good number of tourists evidently get the same thrill at Brazil Grill, where the fare is   More

So you catch a rerun of Goodfellas and start thinking, "I gotta get some of that red sauce with all the meats, the one Paulie makes in prison." But you ain't in Jersey, so where are you gonna go? You're going to go to Gino's. The room, it's big and dark and real casual like, and if you've got to wai   More

Food Reviews & Stories
One might expect a simple cr�perie to be open for lunch, yet Le Happy is not, perhaps because it's really a nightspot. A deep-red, womblike room with a lively bar scene, good art, lots of funky house cocktails like gin & ginger with housemade ginger ale ($6) and, oh yeah, cr�pes: delivery sy   More

Dish Review


Food Reviews & Stories
Owner and Dallas navtive Joe Esparza never intended to serve authentic Mexican food; instead, his menu was inspired by his mother's cooking. While carne asada with mashed potatoes might have tasted cutting-edge in 1990, now we have to wonder if the people who fill the tables here every night are din   More

Cheap Eats 2005


Food Reviews & Stories
Is the food at House of Louie great? Nah. Does the kitsch setting make it worth the trip? Oh, yeah. Steeped in imperial red and gold, with flying dragons and a big bowl of fortune cookies by the register, it is a fever dream of a Chinese-American restaurant circa 1950. Skip the hot-and-sour soup and   More

This unassuming spot in the Thurman Building has perhaps the city's best view of the Fremont Bridge's parabolic arc. The room is both industrial and warm (e.g., exposed ceiling ducts and a leather club couch), with a rack of perusable magazines and free wi-fi. The breakfast- and lunch-only fare runs   More
