A few stray bits of Nishi intel: Diners from friends & family meals were saying good things about the bundt cake. Also, apparently the wine list features some selections from UNEXPECTED LOCALES like Idaho. And apparently, somewhere down the road, the Nishi team plans to offer a large-format feast. If you happen to stop by this weekend, let us know what you think.

UPDATE: Here's a look at the menu.
