Dining at Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen is more akin to dining at a friend's house than dining at an acclaimed restaurant (even though it has garnered many accolades). That's because it's built in a former residence. Dine in the homey interior or get some fresh air in the backyard, where the chefs grown their own herbs. Taste the fresh flavors in pastas like the tortellini with celery root, parsley, butter, and truffle. Enjoy a creative cocktail and finish off your meal with a delectable dessert - the marscapone cheesecake.
