Chef Matt Levin and entrepreneur Kar Vivekananthan just took the paper off the windows of their bistro, Adsum (700 S. Fifth St., 267-888-7002), which opens 4 p.m. Wednesday, July 14.

Levin calls it a refined neighborhood bistro serving a menu of progressive cuisine.

Here's the menu.

Decor, as you'll see from the poorly shot Flip video below, includes a bar back filled with lab equipment, befitting Levin's reputation as a kitchen scientist. The dining tables were recovered from a high school science classroom, and contain naughty words and random etchings carved therein by bored students.
