Excellent food in rather cramped quarters. The decor is what you'd expect: "contemporary/ rustic/minimal, wood on the walls, spare furnishings, open kitchen & decor to highlight the food. So aside from the interior (which I am personally just getting tired of) & the attendant noise which comes from having few fabrics and probably 2-3 too many tables in a space; I have to say this is a great restaurant.
While I am resistant to the idea of prix fixe menus (Sbraga is $45 for 4 courses, more if you do wine pairings) this kitchen does it wonderfully. I decided to do the wine pairing which was a luxury but worth it. The wine choices were interesting & really did complement the entire meal. I started off with a salad, followed by a fish course of Arctic Char, a meat course of Lamb and finished with an apple caramel dessert. It was just enough food for me & I felt completely sated without being overly full. If you are looking to take home leftovers this is not the place for you.
Service was efficient & informative, friendly without being overbearing. Only real disappointment of the night was my specialty cocktail ($11), La Vie en Rose a gin based drink it was too swet for my taste & the rose petal garnish, way too girly.
Lastly, it is a very hot restaurant right now. Don't be surprised to see yourself sitting next to politicians, local celebrities & faces that seem familiar but you can't quite place. Don't be worried about being ignored, I never got the feeling the servers were favoring one table over another. That said, the only table I saw (Top) Chef Sbraga visit was the ex-Govenor's. Which is fine with me, because personally I like it better when the chef is in the kitchen.
