Editorial Review of Palette Bistro

Palette Bistro, a romantic restaurant with dimmed lights and a cozy, wood-lined interior, has replaced Lucca's, the Italian joint in the Lakeview neighborhood.

By all means, start off your evening with the bacon-wrapped sea scallops on a bed of spinach leaves, or the palette Portobello mushroom topped with baked brie. For the main course, you can still have your pasta alla vodka, Sicilian lasagna or Mediterranean penne (pasta prices range from $13-$20) because there's still an Italiano in the kitchen.

What's new on the menu is the seafood and steak. trout, ahi tuna, blue marlin steak or bacon-wrapped sea scallops are yours for $19-$28. Or if your palette prefers land animals, enjoy the filet, ribeye steak, New York strip, short ribs, meatloaf, mushroom-crusted Iowa pork chop or braised veal shoulder for $13-$29.

The bistro offers cocktails at the bar (where the martini bottle casts a warm glow on the pine wood) but this is primarily a dinner place, owing to the predominance of families in the Lakeview neighborhood (kids eat free).

Average cost: $21-$30
