If you've tired of Eastern European meat and you're looking for a light southern Europe touch, La Galleria (tel. 0259/47-5490; Mon-Sat noon-3pm and 7-11:30pm) is the finest Italian joint in town (you'll find it right near the State Theater). If not, you'll find plenty of low-key, down-home Romanian/Hungarian options along or around Strada Republicii. Alternatively, head for the small, agreeable restaurant at centrally located Hotel Elite where you could start with a salad of forest mushrooms and marinated vegetables, then move on to Moldavian-style pork, or Mediterranean-style orata fish, baked with tomato, olives, and oregano.
