What's good on College west these days?

I have a friend who wants to eat on College this evening. I've enjoyed Sidecar. Cinq 01 was ok.
Is L.A.B. still worth checking out? What about Grace?

    Have you tried Negroni? It's very casual with a simple menu of panini, a couple of pastas and risottos. But the quality is top notch, and those panini are the only sandwiches I've ever had a craving for. The wine list is small and well priced and the espressos are very good. Dessert options are simple and include some excellent housemade ice creams.

    It's a sister restaurant to Sidecar, FWIW.

    I've only been to L.A.B. once (last summer) and I was completely underwhelmed.

          We had a delicious meal at Frank's Kitchen one night and then another delicious meal at Sidecar Bar and Grill the very next evening. Both highly recommended but found we liked the service and more relaxed atmosphere at Sidecar better. Our waiter at Franks was clearly overwhelmed and not very attentive as the place filled up. Plus on a Sunday night, Sidecar has a $25 three course menu. Their steak and frites are fantastic!

            I am a fan of Vecchio Frak. Family-owned, friendly service. The pizza is delicious and alot tastier then some of the other restaurants that tend to rule this board (eg. libretto). I don't mean to slam Libretto either. I truly had delicious appetizers and friendly service there, unfortunately I found the pizza dough too doughy to enjoy. Back on track, I think Vecchio Frak is a great place for a nice meal out with a friend.
