AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Cuisine/Specialty): The emphasis is on fresh and local ingredients. I love when vegetables are more than a side dish. Pasta is made daily and paired with unique sauces.
Translated as sweet madness, this spot is a popular, local favorite and reservations are definitely suggested. The setting at this trendy bistro is intimate with colorful artwork on the vividly-colored walls. The chef makes good use of fresh ingredients from local farmers and vendors to create his nightly specials. The main menu, which changes weekly, features California cuisine with some Asian and Mediterranean influences. Wood-fired oven designer pizza (salami and Brie with mozzarella and apricot jam) as well as more complex entrées include wood fired lamb chops with roasted fennel or the daily house-made pasta. Appetizers include Japanese grilled oysters, artichoke hearts and pancetta cheesecake. Desserts also are quite complex and include such items as white chocolate crème brûlée. They have a very nice wine list.
