The former Little Italy Art Parkway branch has been completely transformed into this attractive Taiwanese pork ribs and American beef ribs restaurant by its interior decorator owner, who also opened the separate Cafe Task upstairs (see other “What’s New” article). Seating 40, the first-floor interior is a striking combination of white walls; medium-hued wooden tables, chairs, floors and ceiling rafters; and rounded arches. Marinated and cooked in a western-meets-Chinese style, six main courses (6 oz. NT$280-370; 8 oz. NT$360-430)–which come with appetizer, soup option, Thai rice or rice cake, and cheese fried egg–include Classic Braised Pork Ribs With Sake; Stewed Beef Ribs With Red Wine; Classic Braised Pork Ribs With Chimichurri & Honey Garlic; and Stewed Beef Ribs With Red Wine Vinegar & Red Pomegranate. A mix of pork and beef ribs and other sides can be sampled with NT$777 two-person and NT$1,188 three-person sets. A good accompaniment are 10 mostly German and Belgian beers (NT$170-230).
