Nightwood's heirloom tomato appetizer was beautiful and tasty.

Nightwood is nestled between the heart of two diverse, ethnic neighborhoods — Pilson and Chinatown, but manages to avoid any homage to its location. It’s a little disconcerting. On the plus side, the restaurant does boast a hearty menu with a focus on locally sourced, sustainable food. What we had was certainly tasty, but did the food quality overcome the rampant trendiness and lack of neighborhood focus? Listen in to find out.
