Mistral: The name evokes a sure Mediterranean wind bringing clear water and fresh weather to those sailing upon the sea. Now, Restaurant Mistral offers chef Scott Anderson the chance to create ever-changing, seasonal offerings that can be adjusted to the prevailing winds of his unsurpassed creativity and taste. Scott Anderson has evolved from the “chef to watch” to the “chef everyone is watching.” Following the critically acclaimed success of elements, co-owners Anderson and Steve Distler bring Princeton another showcase celebration of contemporary cuisine with Mistral. With its fast pace, small plates and focus on fresh, vibrant, local fare, Mistral offers a stunning mix of taste, style and atmosphere. The variety and inventiveness of the menu will truly bring a breath of fresh air to Princeton’s dining community.

"The combination of unique flavors and unique dishes are combined to make the small dishes into a wonderful lunch. We had a chicken dish that could not be more tender and flavorful. The rye pasta was cooked perfectly. The cold apricot soup was like a Middle Eastern gazpacho.
A terrific meal"

Rustic Northern Italian featuring homemade pastas, thin crust pizzas and wood grilled meats and fish. An all Italian wine list highlights small producers and an international beer list focuses on artisinal brews. A traditional Italian Osteria nestled on North Broad Street.

"The food is delicious and any pasta is special. The breads and house made bread sticks are addicting. The flavors blend and the pizza superb. The wine and beer lists are well paired. The service is knowledgeable."

Chef Michael Psilakis and partner Donatella Arpaia have moved their rustic Greek gem, Kefi, to a larger space at 505 Columbus Avenue. The new, 200-seat interior evokes the feeling of a palatial Greek hideaway broken up into several smaller dining rooms to keep Kefi’s intimate appeal.<br /><br />The menu of favorites straight from Psilakis’ childhood will remain the same with some new additions. Signature dishes like Baccala, crispy-fried cod with garlic potatoes and tomato, Grilled Octopus with bean salad, and Hilopita, baked pasta with rabbit ragout and béchamel are still on offer. Additions include Grilled Sardines with chopped “Greek Salad” and garlic sauce, Macaronia Spestofai, tubular pasta with Greek sausage, peppers, onions, tomato and feta and an entirely new section of Greek Sandwiches featuring house-made sausages and pork and lamb gyro.
