Chelsea's Kitchen

This outpost of Craig and Kris DeMarco and Bob Lynn's ever-expanding culinary kingdom leaves behind the boutique ambiance and eats of Postino and La Grande Orange for something far more sophisticated and satisfying. Built like an airy, one-story Arizona ranch house, with a peaked roof, a big front porch, and a huge patio out back with a large brick fireplace, CK exudes comfort, warmth, and solidity. And the menu does the same, with an offering of burgers, steaks, tacos, green chile stew, fried chicken, and so on. May seem pedestrian at first glance, but the flavor to be had in each item is first-class, with four-star preparation. Return visits a must.
