Fine/Contemporary Dining: Catalpa

From May through September, Catalpa features chef-owner Liz Huff’s fresh and creative cuisine. Her food draws influence from around the world, with dishes like pork shanks served over apple-orange-bacon chutney and shrimp sautéed in garlic oil with Chimayo chiles and lemon. Catalpa also opens in December for the Lyceum Theatre’s season. (Photo by Jennifer Silverberg)
