Down o,Eart

-'7)1404.

Gravity offers the kind of food that briTgrs people back.

BY ANNABEL COHEN I PHOTOGRAPHY BY ANGIE BAAN

owntown Milford is like the perfect little movie
set — but it's no throw-back. It's decidedly
upsc ale, yet mom-and-pop at the same time. And for
such a small piece of real estate, there are several go-
to eateries that should leave other downtowns look-
ing to Milford for a little advice.
One such restaurant is Gravity Bar & Grill.
With a, what else, Main Street address, this is far
from meatloaf, but still has a bit of the "iii, how you
doing?" feel about it.
The restaurant is in a strip of shops, not free-
standing, and is thus confined to a smallish space
that as near as I could count seats around 100 people,
including the bar. The atmosphere is serene and
sophisticated. Dark wood, low lighting, crisp white
tablecloths and turquoise- and pumpkin-toned walls
are warm and inviting.
Because the dining room is basically a rectangle,
guests eat in close proximity to others. And the menu
is extremely approachable: The Chicken Schnitzel
is explained in just a few words, and when it arrives,
it's hot, tasty and beautifully presented — just as
expected.
The same is true of nearly everything else that's

served. My Herb Panko Encrusted Whitefish was
lovely, served over a creamy risotto and a mildly
sweet citrus sauce. The signature Tuscan Steak rib
eye marinated in garlic and herbs is extremely popu-
lar.
Like the decor, the food is solid, if not super-
imaginative, although mans' of the offerings include
Asian or Mediterranean influences. The Portabella
Napoleon (below), for instance, featured phyllo
discs layered with roasted peppers, goat cheese and
a lovely drizzle of olive oil and a balsamic reduction.
I could order anything and be happy. With about a
dozen entree items, plus a couple of daily specials,
one can certainly find something for every taste.
The portion sizes and menu prices were congru-
ent: A serving was actually an appropriate serving,
and the prices reflect this. Dinners start at around
$15 (including a lovely mixed greens or Caesar
salad), with steaks and some seafood items appro-
priately more pricey. Desserts are suitably matched
- creme brulee, apple cranberry twist, a two-tone
brownie sundae. The lunch menu features many
of the dinner items, plus sandwiches. Once again,
they're down-to-earth and delicious. Li
