    Crispo is the way to go plus the rest of their menu is over the top and perfect cool weather food

        I have to agree that Crispo is the best. Had it last weekend and it was fantastic as was everything else we had. Such a great meal. Only complaint was that the restaurant was too dark, could barely see what we were eating. We were seated opposite the banquettes and no overhead lights along that wall. Guess you trade less cramped tables for light.

      Prune's is good too - only on their brunch menu!
