Grapeseed American Bistro is a casual bistro that matches great food and wine together. With anywhere from 80 to 100 wines by the glass and approximately 325 bottle listed, we cater to the novice wine lover and to the experienced. We start with a bottle of wine and pick out the characteristics and nuances of the wine and then award winning Chef Jeffrey Heineman creates a menu item to highlight the flavors of the wine. So come in and relax, have a taste or a glass of wine and try something on our ever-changing menu.

"The restaurant was almost empty, which can cause discomfort. My friend and I had so much to talk about that it didn't really matter. Unfortunately, the one/only waiter made himself scarce and forgot to bring a few items to the table. They were out of a preferred tea and charged $4.00 for a cup of tea as opposed to the coffee charge of $2.50. We thought the tea price was outrageous and told the owner. The meal was definitely worth $10. And, we'd probably go back some time."

Quote as “unpretentious but stylish”, Le Chat Noir, casual bistro-style with Parisian left-bank feel features classic, traditional French cuisine and a large selection of savory and sweet crepes. The Wine Lounge atop Le Chat Noir restaurant pays homage to vintage -- wine-making and a retrospect to Comics Black & White silent films. With an impressive wine list and a wide-range of cocktails for you to choose from, it is a place to share an intimate moment. Cozy home-like ambiance, we look forward to nourishing you and tantalizing your taste buds in our art nouveau inspired Restaurant and Lounge.

At Gran Gusto, we pride ourselves on the best quality for a great price. We are a completely in-house production, starting with fresh, basic ingrediants in order to create homemade bread to desert. Over 80% of our products come from Italy one time a week such as, olive oil, flour, truffles, specialty cheeses, bufala mozzarella for the Neopolotan-style pizza, ice cream and etc.

"We had a 2-block walk on a beautiful day. Loved the décor. Food was good. We did have a problem with the server because she didn't speak a word of English. I would be glad to return, when in that neighborhood."

"This is my second visit. The first time I had dinner and couldn't wait to go back again. Everything was perfect! This time (lunch) was not memorable. The waiter was okay. We asked for recommendations without curry and "not too spicey". He wasn't helpful, even though he knew the menu well and did try. Service all around was just okay."
