One Time Visit: This downtown eatery specializes in small plates. It's a trendy scene, with open kitchen area, bar and patio. The patio, while nice, is on a busy street.

Chef Claudio Aprile--who once worked under Ferran Adria--warned his loyal followers that his new endeavour was not Colborne Lane, the trailblazing eatery whose molecular menu put chef on the map. He wasn't kidding. As its name suggests, Aprile's new carte leaves the test tubes behind for a simpler approach to food, one that focusses on the pleasures of a solitary scoop of mozzarella, or a...
