For main courses, try the delicate Salmon Dijon ($15.95), served medium rare and accompanied by savory homestyle mashed potatoes and grilled seasonal vegetables. Another favorite is the Cioppino ($15.95), a hearty "seafood stew" of various fresh seafoods swimming in a bath of saffron fish stock and spaghetti, perfect for cold winter nights. The vegetarian can delight in the spicy and robust Puttanesca ($10.95), with healthy chunks of fresh tomato and tangy bursts of caper goodness served with Penne for a big tasty treat.
While waiting at the handsome bar for your food to be packaged, check out the rotating dessert menu. The Tiramisu ($6) is the most decadent I've ever tasted, dusted with a dry semi-sweet cocoa to create a pitch perfect dessert. The portions are enormous, so you'll have plenty of food for your sexy "homemade" meal and a subsequent lunch or two. BRIAN BRAIT
