The name was chosen to denote energy and this place hums with it. Chef/author Jimmy Schmidt, whose food philosophy can be summed up in the words fresh and seasonal, has simplified the menu. He offers anumber of grilled fish, steaks and chops as well as imaginative dishes like lak perch sauteed with citrus, capers, sweet peppers and thyme. The riverfront setting is airy and sophisticated, with massive flower arrangements and contemporary art in a room with windows on two sides. Desserts, such as warm chocolate souffle with white chocolate ice cream, are not to be missed.
