Range is consistently rated among the city's top restaurants, and for good reason: The concise and constantly changing menu never fails to have something on it that you want to eat—egg noodle pasta with roasted sweet tomatoes and goat's milk ricotta, or coffee-rubbed pork shoulder with creamy hominy and collard greens, for example. For dessert, the goat cheesecake with spiced pecan spelt shortbread and lemon curd is everything you'd expect.
