The food at Grano Trattoria is comforting in all the right ways. Rich, sauce-laden fresh pastas and an entrée menu with a focus on game make for more interesting comfort food than you'd whip up at home. Add sweet service and reasonable prices, and you've got a decent neighborhood Italian joint for those evenings when you're willing to put on shoes but not lipstick.Brunch
