Mélange Is A Must.

This past weekend I had lunch with some friends at a new bistro at La Place in Beachwood called Mélange.

Next door to William Sonoma, the space itself is done up in coffee and cream, with bursts of tangerine; the restaurant would not be out of place in the lobby of a boutique Miami hotel. Guests are guided to their seats that range from cushy button-tufted leather banquettes to suede armchairs. The space is divided into two main rooms, a carpeted dining room and the lounge that includes a lengthy wood and glass that casts a calming orange glow throughout the room.

I had a salad with grilled-to-perfection tuna and a light lemon dressing, while some of the others enjoyed the soup and salad combos and the hefty Kobe beef burgers. Next time I go I want to get the build-your-own fish taco appetizer that our neighbors were enjoying. I hear they have a great brunch and would love to try it real soon. Definitely check it out.
