Food porn: Bittersweet

This week I review Bittersweet, Olav and Melissa Peterson's six-month-old restaurant that features a menu of artisanal, old-world cuisine with a modern twist. I spent a particularly pleasant evening on the eatery's patio recently, surrounded by a kitchen garden and meandering through Olav's new summer menu.

Here's a serving of food porn to go with that review. To see more photos of Bittersweet, check out our slide show.
