To the Wind Bistro Is a Breath of Fresh Air

Bigger isn't always better, which is why Mizuna alum Royce Oliveira chose a 628-square-foot location on East Colfax Avenue for the home of To the Wind Bistro, the restaurant he opened this past March with his wife and pastry chef, Leanne Adamson. "We were looking for something small," Oliveira explains. "That way, if I mess up, I mess up small rather than mess up big." But To the Wind Bistro rarely messes up, and when it does, the small glitches only reinforce the charm of this tiny place, Gretchen Kurtz reports in her review of To the Wind Bistro, now posted on Cafe Society.
