Executive chef Chad Houser plays mentor to the at-risk youth (non-violent offenders who have spent time in juvenile detention) who staff the kitchen and dining room at this bighearted downtown nonprofit restaurant, open just three nights per week. The cooking is inventive, the dishes sophisticated but not fussy, and the execution is usually spot-on. A thoughtful wine list offers wines by the bottle only at a fraction of what you’d pay for them elswhere. The service is warm and unpretentious, and gratuities aren’t accepted — you’ll want to leave a donation, instead. The kids are learning the cooking skills, job skills and life skills here to help them “achieve their full potential.” Wine only. Closed Sunday-Wednesday. — Leslie Brenner/Guide
