I sometimes walk into Bin 228 by myself for happy hour and it's always a great visit. The Fig and Proscuitto panini is delicious. Just the right amount of sweet and salty. And even the pasta salad that comes as a side is delicious. I...More

Bin 228 has an odd menu. Heavy on shared appetizers, soups, salads and panini with a single special soup and entree every day. Since I had skipped lunch I was famished and ordered the halibut special. A bit pricey at $27 - everything else was...More
