Summaries of recently reviewed area restaurants, in the order in which they were reviewed, with the most recent at the top.
w Elephant Bar, 5001 Monroe St. at Westfield Frankin Park, has a large, intimidating menu that highlights international fare. Some of the entrees, such as a garlic noodles and shrimp stir fry, are mediocre, and some, including the misoyaki fire-grilled salmon, are sublime. $$ 3 stars
w PizzaPapalis, 519 Monroe St., offers a tasty Chicago-style deep dish pizza unlike anything else around the area. It's savory, it's cheesy, and it's really, really filling. The rest of the menu is solid with a smattering of Italian dishes and sandwiches. $$ 3 stars
w Poco Piatti, 3155 Chappel Drive in Perrysburg's Levis Commons, serves small and large plates with fine Lebanese, Italian, and Greek dishes and pitchers of sangria. And there's some good vegetarian fare in this chic villa-style restaurant. $$$ 4 stars.
w Korea Na, 536 South Reynolds Rd., Toledo, is an easy way to get a taste of Korea. Mavens of grilled meat will love the bulgogi and kalbi in their smoky sweet sauces. Dolsot bibim bab is a heavenly take on fried rice. $$ 4 stars.
