For those looking for a more complete meal, the Wedge offers a great line-up of appetizers, including an anti-pasto platter of roasted veggies, cheese, olives and salami.

Another big seller is the Wedge Trio, which features seasoned flatbread, fired in the oven, along with tapenade, roasted artichoke hearts and a red pepper hummus.

At this restaurant, salads are anything but pedestrian. There's a standard Caesar salad, but The Wedge salad is covered in cucumbers, tomatoes, fennel, kalamata olives and herb vinaigrette.

For a different kind of salad, The Beet Goes On features roasted beets with shallots, oranges, thyme and reggiano cheese — a truly unique flavor.
