In a narrow cubbyhole on Campbell Avenue sits one of downtown’s newest restaurants, Leonore, named after owner Miguel Liendo’s mother. After five years working at his brother and sister’s pizzeria, Grace’s Place in Grandin Village, Liendo has finally struck out on his own.
This sliver of a restaurant has, by my count, three tables and 18 stools situated at the bar and at a counter that outlines the perimeter of the dining room. The beige walls are tastefully painted to give the impression of randomly exposed brick and a rustic Italian vibe. The atmosphere is light and airy, although it can get a little cramped during the lunchtime rush.
