The Quarter Bistro has multiple personalities: one part clubby neighborhood joint, one part dinner and a movie with a dash of lusty romance. Jonathan Hunt launched a new menu last spring, though some old favorites remain. The Quarter Burger, a half-pound of black Angus beef, is seasoned but not overly so, with a sturdy-but-not-too-chewy bun. Mahi fish tacos with shredded cabbage, guacamole, and cilantro sour cream are a new addition, as is watermelon gazpacho. Its simplicity is refreshing. The 18-hour short ribs are the star of the menu, and reason enough to skip the movie next door. Braised into a flavor bomb of meat candy, it's served over a splendid corn fondue, alongside shine-free Vidalia onion rings, a couple of wedges of caramelized peach, and a chestnut brown demi-glace. With the no-lip service—and a reenergizing of a dated menu—The Quarter Bistro could be well on the way to making middle age look sexy.
