Restaurant Reviews Ryan Querbach What works: The wide selection of sushi. What needs work: Some of the prices are relatively high. The tip: We didn’t stray far from the sushi menu, but the kitchen items have a great reputation.
What worked: The service was prompt and friendly in this family-owned bistro. What needs work: A few inexpensive flourishes would add more appeal to the plain-Jane iceberg lettuce salads. The tip: Bring your appetite! There is a large selection of traditional Italian-American favorites served in a simple setting.
Leave the brushes at home; this Picasso is all about eats.
Restaurant Reviews Greg Elwell Picasso Cafe What works: Crowd-pleasing menu and service. What needs work: I'd like en entrée of pretzels. But that's more my issue. Tips: Go at night and get a drink. Hippy Juice tastes like smiles, but will knock you down.
What works: The ribs and the smoked ham are some of the best. What doesn’t work: Come at the wrong time and you’ll find a very long line and only one register. Tip: If it’s nice, sit on the back patio. If you get sweet tea, mix it 50-50 with unsweetened, lest you get diabetes.
