Best new restaurant: Cena

Best new restaurant

Chef Michael Buttacavoli delivers big time on Cena’s promise to be “modern, fresh, and simple.” CL’s return trips since a 4-star review in July have only confirmed that the kitchen rocks. There’s not a single item on the menu that disappoints, and many offer a welcome element of surprise. And pastry chef Evan Schmidt continues to knock you on your culinary ass. On top of everything, Cena offers some great bargains; the price, as they say on a certain TV game show, is right.
