This is fine dining on the Mag Mile, without having to go overboard on the cash or the clothes. Right next door to the posh cafe is its smart, sophisticated and casual sister Spiaggia. And don't worry casual still means stylish, exquisite decor. The Chef Partner Tony Mantuano and Executive Chef Missy Robbins have teamed up to create a fantastic menu with items including Gamberi Al Forno Con Rosmarino, Aglio E Cannellini (Wood-roasted shrimp with rosemary, garlic, and white beans) and Branzino In Acqua Pazza (Oven-poached fillet of striped bass in a spicy broth with thyme and sauteed spinach). Don't miss the pasta dishes. Cafe Spiaggia opens at 6pm from Monday to Thursday, at 5:30pm on Friday and Saturday and at 6pm on Sunday.
