CP REVIEW: Besides Chinese-American dishes, there's an appealing listing of Pacific Rim selections, as well cross-cultural experiments like barbecued chicken with rosemary, chilies and hoisin sauce. Add in a list of daily specials and a full sushi bar, and that's quite a selection for this somewhat upscale Chinese restaurant. [July 2007]
CP REVIEW: Using Mediterranean flavors as inspiration, this casually upscale restaurant offers inventive cuisine, including pastas, meat and vegetarian entrees that emphasize seasonal and local ingredients, in a warmly decorated dining room. Also popular: chef tastings, wine flights from an extensive menu, and a charming outdoor patio. [July 2007]
CP REVIEW: A perfect place to catch lunch or a snack during Strip District shopping forays, this little cafe offers an array of artisan breads, French pastries, fine cheeses and refined delicatessen fare. The few tables up front -- augmented by sidewalk seating in season -- have the authentic feel of a bright, cozy, Parisian cafe. [Aug. 24, 2006]

CP REVIEW: Adjacent orchards are one of the attractions at this comfortable, clubby suburban restaurant. The Italian-inspired menu features the fruits of these orchards in several apple-based dishes, including apple ravioli and apple bruschetta. Bella Frutteto combines an innovative but unfussy menu with friendly service and congenial seating. [Sept. 3, 2008]

CP REVIEW: Though set in a humble shopping strip, Angkor's interior offers quiet charm in an elegant setting accented with traditional Southeast Asian motifs. A lengthy menu of unusual Thai and Cambodian dishes, with many vegetarian options, will delight adventurous diners. [July 2007]
