Sneak Review: Chow Down Grill

A quick bite from next week's Cafe review:

Marcus formerly served as pasta maker at Timo Restaurant, and the lush doughs here are delicious -- especially the jade-green ones made from basil that wrap around a vibrant chop of organic chicken. Black squid dumplings are special too, filled with shrimp, fennel, and corn. Regular dough envelopes finely minced beef, and a much thinner, more delicate wrap is used for a half-dozen chicken wontons that nearly float in a pool of spicy peanut sauce.
