Welcome to


With a tapas menu that is in touch with the traditions of Spain, Europe and the Mediterranean we provide an opportunity to feature many locally produced organic foods and farm products. Our outdoor seating and funky interior create a comfortable atmosphere. Come for dinner, and stay for the nightlife – the Sangria is a must.


A lively bistro with ample outdoor seating, Mono Loco will keep your belly full and your taste buds tingling. The nouveau-Latin cuisine packs a flavorful punch, and our kitchen staff creates daily specials that are thoughtful and delicious. Our authentic guacamole and salsa are a great start to a fulfilling meal. Try one of our margaritas made with fresh squeezed lime juice and fruits ranging from blueberry and raspberry to blood orange.


Our dinner menu offers a twist on traditional fish house fare with simplicity as the main objective. Using only the freshest seafood and local artisan ingredients our menus offer anything from Yellowfin Tuna tartar, Crispy Lamb Belly, to Wild Steelhead Salmon. We offer one of the city's most unique dining experiences and play a major role in the nightlife scene.


We approach traditional Japanese dishes as if they were works of modern art. The superior ingredients are the building blocks of inspiration and the plates are crafted to please both the palate and the eye. The seafood arrives daily from fishing auctions in Japan and Hawaii. Beyond the incredibly fresh sushi, the menu features a variety of hot and cold ala carte items and offers many choices for vegetarians as well as non-seafood eaters. Ten also features an extensive wine list, and specialty cocktails using unique ingredients such as the “Ten" which is comprised of sake, vodka, aloe juice, and sweet Japanese plums called momokochan.


Our menu changes weekly, but we can guarantee that you’ll always find both tradition and innovation. While we bring you tastes from all over the world, we also make sure to emphasize the local. Our produce, when in season, comes from area farmers. Our trout comes from nearby Madison County, and our beer comes just down the street from the Starr Hill Brewery. While we offer an international selection of fine wines, we make sure to feature wines from local vineyards.


Cinema Taco is the Downtown Mall’s only tacqueria, featuring authentic Mexican and South American food. Cinema Taco has developed a loyal fan base in its own right. Downtown workers stop by for lunch several times a week. Music lovers fuel up before a night of dancing. Regulars argue over which is the best empanada. We even stay open late when there is a show at the Jefferson.
