I enjoyed my meal at Unum. I had the parppardelle and grilled branzino half plates. The food was delicious! For dessert ricotta fritters with cardamom blueberry sauce.

Billed as a French resturant, their entrees seem pretty international. Seafood was good and we had a seat on the street side, out of the rain. Nice area, good staff. Not spectacular, but good value, I'd do it again

We happened by this restaurant and decided to give it a try. The food was wonderful with decent variety. Middle of the road pricing .. we had a burger, scallops, cheese tray, a little of everything. A nice quiet place.

Unum offers a fresh menu in a cozy setting. We especially enjoyed the half portion menu offerings - good for smaller appetites or sharing.

I was here on Sunday night with a friend, and liked it so much that I booked it again on Wednesday for a business dinner. Don't miss the roasted cauliflower or the brussels sprouts. The dick was excellent as well.

We stopped in at the bar for drinks and ended up staying for dinner. We had the beet salad, octopus, and chicken liver for appetizers. For dinner we had the small plate portion of scallops and hanger steak. We enjoyed everything and would definitely go...More
