We wouldn't be so amazed at the quick changeover from Doug Arango's to Melrose Bar & Grill if it was just a coat of paint and some new plants. The place wasn't gutted, but it's a completely different look for the Melrose spot, and we're told, a more casual vibe. That's what owners Chris and Julie Bennett are going after anyway. On the menu: duck bruger with gouda and cherry ketchup, cider-brined pork chop with house-cured sauerkraut, thin-crust pizzas, and daily specials. Everything under $25.
