A new incarnation of Plate, the East Brookside restaurant devastated by a fire more than two years ago, has risen from the ashes and is dressed to impress. Christian Joseph’s new restaurant is three times the size of the original, featuring a sleek, stylish dining room and bar that stays open late.

In the kitchen, executive chef Brian Mehl has created an upscale, modern Italian menu that’s ideal for business lunches, happy hour or a romantic date. Make a meal from the antipasti menu featuring hamachi crudo, risotto arancini and burrata with beet-green pesto.

As at the original Plate, the housemade pasta dishes continue to steal the show, such as the chervil ravioli with goat cheese, balsamic leeks, radicchio, Zante currants, asparagus Vignole and Parmesan.
