This Hyde Park joint casts the net wide with a catchall menu of wallet-wise, student-friendly dishes: sushi, pizza, sandwiches, soup, salads. Most of it comes out of the bright, open kitchen decently prepared—the chicken pesto sandwich features thinly sliced bird and plenty of pesto; the firm, if unremarkable, fish in the Chicago Fire roll is spiced up with cilantro and jalapeño. But when you’re offering something for everyone, there’s bound to be some bombs, and the caprese salad is a miss: wan, watery tomatoes and scoops of dried basil drowning in balsamic vinegar. That’ll teach us to order caprese in winter.
