This family-owned bistro has an ambitious continental menu filtered through the lens of South America. Arepas, light little corn pockets stuffed with minced meat, embodied the latter, while a rich French onion soup, with its thick crust of bread and melted Gruyère and Parmesan, took us across the pond. Sizzling pulpo transported us to Galicia, where we had dined on the dish similarly prepared, tender with a satisfying smokiness and a beautiful plethora of grilled vegetables alongside. The chic dining room is filled with light and features local art; on milder days, the patio is a good option. We’ll be back for the much-touted brunch, with its promise of waffles, egg dishes, and sweets.
