This dimly lit eatery, tucked onto an otherwise lonely corner of Grand Avenue, doesn’t quite achieve the chic, bistro-like feel it strives for, though it does score points for having a homey, casual feel. While the menu splashes on a hodgepodge of territories homemade ravioli, surf and turf, paella, and finger food such as mozzarella sticks and wings there are some highlights. The Spot roasted chicken comes with a pleasingly salty, thick gravy, and filet mignon is perfectly cooked. Mozzarella en carozza, basically a highbrow grilled cheese, makes an effortlessly rich starter. The penne mozzarella, while big enough for two, isn’t memorable otherwise, nor is the side of the pucklike sweet plantains. And since there's a long list of inexpensive cocktails to choose from, you might not mind the turtle-slow pace of the waitstaff.
