Best New Restaurant


Readers' Pick

Sapore offers the best of both worlds. For a casual dining experience in an otherwise swank location, you can get a disarmingly delicious burger and fries for $10. If you want to go fancy, you can feast on lemon-rosemary halibut and heirloom potatoes, or creamy pancetta ravioli. (Are we drooling?) The restaurant opened last winter and is run by the same owners of the Mandolin, which used to be located inside the Union Club. The new space on Higgins features a glowing amber bar and on warm nights Sapore’s French doors open out onto the sidewalk. The combination of elegance and comfort make it a runaway winner in this category. Sapore: 424 N. Higgins; 542-6695;
