Well-known restaurant consultant Elizabeth Blau and her talented husband, chef Kim Canteenwalla, have brought us what might be the most popular neighborhood restaurant to open here in many a moon. The menu reads like a greatest-hits list of American comfort foods—turkey meatballs, hand-tossed pizzas, wholesome salads, hearty entrées. The reclaimed furniture and distressed décor works perfectly for an upscale Summerlin crowd, who treat it more like a private club, where everyone seems to be on a first-name basis with the staff. Head chef Joe Zanelli has a deft touch with items such as Nana’s tiffin chicken curry (a tiffin is a round, stackable metal dish), grass-fed steak and inner-child desserts, such as the rustic peach pie in a brown paper bag. Blau and Canteenwalla have impeccable taste. Ice creams are by McConnell’s of Santa Barbara, for example, and all products here are carefully sourced. The restaurant recently added a tasting menu for dinner—appetizer, entrée and dessert—at a nice price ($45). No restaurant in the city covers all the bases better than this place. 1031 S. Rampart Blvd., 445-6100.
