Aposto: Aposto wowed us last weekend with their Restaurant Week menu. After savoring the first course of roasted shishitos with burrata fonduta, pickled shallots and fried capers, we moved on to the stellar entrees: salmon with a summery panzanella salad, and handmade cavatelli. The vanilla bean panna cotta and chocolate torte provided the perfect finish.
Bubba Southern Comforts: With both dinner ($35 per person) and lunch ($28 for two) menus, this downtown eatery has a lot to offer. Click the link for the full lineup, but breaded pork chop, roasted chicken salad and sweet biscuit strawberry cheesecake are some of the standout options.
Americana: Here you can get lunch ($16), dinner ($45) and drinks ($11). The dinner menu features a flat iron steak as an entree and homemade cheesecake to top off the meal. For cocktails, choose between the Pear Tree (a pear-flavored drink with vodka, vermouth and champagne) or Nectarine Smash, made with pecan-washed bourbon.
