The kitchen at 12th Street cooks all day so that when dinnertime rolls around, you don’t have to. Short-rib pie is a gorgeous creation of shredded long-cooked beef with pearl onions and carrots ringed with flaky puff pastry. A meaty, slow-braised lamb shank comes with a fried polenta cake. Pique your appetite with the alpine tart, a lovely combination of goat cheese, leeks and sun-dried tomatoes, or the cumin-dusted scallops topped with citrus-pomegranate sauce. Desserts (like the rest of the menu) change seasonally, but on an autumn evening, the apple-pecan crisp can’t be beat.
