Flavor: Chef David Cook serves up delicious, sophisticated fare with artistic flair — foie gras presented as a breakfast plate, oysters as a visit to the beach, venison as a Bengals’ tailgate party — all served by a professional, friendly staff in a sleek, intimate setting. While the menu can be pricey, you can get a taste of the flavor and flair and keep it reasonable by stopping in for the Cheese Plate — artisanal cheeses with spicy apple chutney. They’re best served with Chimay, a soft and creamy Belgian beer brewed by Trappist monks who must be enlightened.
Flair: This trendy, upscale restaurant fits in well with its high-class Mount Adams neighbors. The tempting dishes and excellent wine selection complement one another, and the room’s warm and wonderful collection of expressionist art. In the warmer months, outside dining is an option.
