Though I find clean-cut, minimal interiors like the one here to be increasingly boring, at La Mensa it has the added zest of a gourmet food and vegetable store tacked on. There's a communal table seating about 20 people, as well as other smaller tables both inside and out. The stand-out main courses are roast beef rib-eye with lentils and garlic puree, veal with spinach and onions, and braised lamb shanks with soft polenta. The couple of vegetarian items include roast banana chilies filled with risotto.
