Carré D’Agnello at Sirio Ristorante

The Maccioni family made a name for itself in Italian dining years ago with Le Cirque. That tradition continues with Sirio Ristorante and dishes such as Carré D’Agnello, a tender and juicy rack of Colorado lamb cooked in a pistachio crust. It’s served with a side of semolina gnocchi dripping with butter and sage. $48, in Aria, 590-7111.

Tempura Alcachofa at Bar + Bistro

With downtown constantly growing, it was only a matter of time before a unique neighborhood bistro moved in. Enter the aptly named Bar + Bistro, where the menu features tapas, pizzas and an array of Afro-Spanish-influenced entrées. The tempura alcachofa stands out as a dish to try off the tapas menu. Long-stemmed artichoke hearts are battered and flash-fried like traditional tempura. Unlike other fried artichoke hearts that are served with garlic aioli, these are served with a curry-flavored variety, giving them an interesting twist. $6, 107 E.
