I went to Velo again on Saturday night and once again it was amazing. I had the best buffalo cauliflower appetizer. The Boston cream pie was delicious. I will definitely going back! The service was excellent.

This small, BYOB is a gem in a culinary wasteland. Relatively new to the area, we've been disappointed time and again in local eateries. The diversity and creativity of the menu is commendable, as is the freshness of the ingredients. Tonight I enjoyed pan-seared scallops...More
