Best Appetizer 

Appetizer Trio of the Day at Cosmopolitan Cafe

Consider the appetizer -- the foreplay in the culinary dance of love. It should be light, enticing, and should make you want more, teasing the palate until your entree arrives, strikes like a thunderbolt, and sends you into the soothing afterglow of dessert. Though Steven Levine's Cosmopolitan Cafe excels in all these areas, the most impressive offering is the labor-intensive appetizer trio of the day -- a different seasonal ingredient (crab, artichoke, asparagus) is prepared three ways (crab tempura, crab cake, crab bisque) every night. It's like having your cake, eating it too, then stealing your neighbor's, or like having three lovers without the cost of multiple Valentine's Day gifts.
