Overview: Daily breakfast, lunch and dinner

Celebrity chef Reed Hearon took a shot at a very casual quick food concept at the site of a former Il Fornaio. After a rocky start the food is very good these days, including the house baked focaccia, breakfast frittatas and great sandwiches. One recent lunch-time salad was a delightful nicoise with fresh poached tuna, olives, lettuces and just the right amount of dressing. At night, the oven-baked mussels are a fave with the Cow Hollow crowd as is the lamb shanks, roast chicken, and salmon. Try the house-baked fruit-filled desserts for a nice homey finish. The heated outdoor cafe seating is pleasant on a nice day.
