Marco Polo supposedly brought the noodle from China to Italy, so it only stands to reason that the Marco Polo Café would combine the two cuisines in one menu. What exactly does that look like? Well, there's the Moo Goo Gai Panini, which is basically a chicken Panini with shiitake mushrooms. The "dumplavoli" are combination plates made of five ravioli and six dumplings such as the Italian sausage ravioli/pork dumpling combo. Other dishes are more conventional, like the bison meatballs over penne pasta and the grilled chicken teriyaki. The beer and wine selection is really up to you, considering the place is BYOB although not that many people stay to eat as the restaurant is more of a tiny take-out joint, with one employee standing in back at the counter next a fridge full of sodas and a couple of wooden tables and small counter providing the only seating.—Keith Wagstaff
