French slang for a casual eatery, Resto is a laid-back Belgian spot with a brand new menu thanks to Chef Koren Grieveson, named one of Food & Wine's Best New Chefs in 2008 and a recipient of the James Beard Award for Best New Chefs in the U.S. Go for the Roasted Duck with Grapes, the Tomato Crevette with Rock Shrimp and a shared plate of the seasonal squash selections.
