Slow-roasted beet salad, apple and watercress salad, seasonal vegetable sauté, grilled portobello mushroom sandwich, veggie burger.
A Northern Star?

Sleek space packed with beautiful people.
A menu that isn't particularly authentic Italian. Several dishes are too oily.
Beef carpaccio, calamari appetizer, tutta la casa salad, zucca chips.
Zucca chips, mozzarella tomato salad, artichoke hearts with Parmesan and white truffle oil, the Asiago, arugula, and sweet onion pizza.
