Overview

Sycamore, a neighborhood bistro in Newtown, serves New American fare like warm beignets, house-made spaghetti tossed with shrimp and uni butter, or the lamb board (roasted, confit and braised lamb) with barley couscous and green lentils. The brick-walled bar pours international wines, craft beers and house cocktails like the Ghost of Mary (citron vodka, spicy tomato water, house dilly bean).
