Expectations were high for James Beard-award-winning chef Celina Tios first restaurant, a casual Brookside bistro. To her credit, the former American Restaurant executive chef lives up to them. Its a tiny but comfortable space, and Tio has introduced a prix-fixe Sunday-night family meal where, like a doting mother, she chooses what the family is eating. The service is very good, and Tios menu adds sophistication to comfort foods such as macaroni and cheese, sweetbreads, pot roast and shepherds pie. The desserts are petite and all under 400 calories, so you dont have to feel guilty about eating a couple of them.
