The art at Sovana Bistro isn’t on the walls. It’s on the plates. Blend beautifully presented farm-to- table cuisine with a casual yet classy atmosphere and you have a winner. The fact that nearby farms are teeming with vegetable gardens doesn’t hurt. Sovana’s 100 Mile Menu is impressive, even in winter, when vegetables are cold-stored in the ground. Want something different? Try the roasted beets, preferably during Sunday brunch on the patio.

From 2009:

Critic Marsha Borin believes Sovana Bistro owners Linda and Nick Farrell have created one of the best restaurants in the region. “Sovana offers creative, consistent food, sparkling table settings, changing and fascinating presentations, and well-trained servers,” she says, not to mention “amazing salads and soups, fabulous sandwiches and wonderful entrées.” Of the two patios on the side and in the back of the restaurant, the back porch is larger and more popular. The contemporary space offers a garden setting enhanced by the aroma of fresh herbs that grow on its perimeter. Soft jazz plays during lunch and dinner, and torches are lit at dusk. Staffers extend the season with heaters, so alfresco dining in fall, especially in October and November when foliage is vibrant, is always an option. The bistro recently acquired a liquor license, thought BYOB is still permitted.
