They settled on Cafe|bar, a reinvented neighborhood restaurant that marries European cafe culture with an environmentally-friendly sensibility in well-designed digs. And they hoped the combination would work well enough to attract regulars, who'd fill the space on any occasion, be it a lunch meeting, romantic dinner or nightcap.
For this week's review I visited Cafe|bar, eating my way through Rivera's menu of North American cafe fare, including such classics as tomato bisque and a bison burger, while watching the neighbors come and go from the tables.
How was the food? Find out tomorrow, when the review is posted here.
