This contemporary American Loop spot is close to the Mercantile Exchange and the Lyric Opera. The interior features oversized floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook a semi-secluded sidewalk cafe, mosaic tiling, an expansive bar and a wine wall. The menu offers lighter choices like ahi tuna tacos, an Asian salad and a flat iron steak sandwich, and moves into entrees like halibut piccata and Dijon mustard-laced short ribs. There's also a grab-n-go area stocked with pastries, sandwiches, salads and more.
