As you might guess from the name, the music is as much of a draw as the food at Carli's. The genial owner and host, Carli Muñoz, toured for a number of years with the Beach Boys (note the gold album on the wall) and plays nightly with his jazz trio, often accompanied by singers and musicians who happen to drop in. Inside the skyline-dominating Banco Popular building, this intimate supper-club bistro has elegant tables scattered around the room and a bar made of black
Italian granite. Have a seat indoors or on the outdoor patio, and dine on such fusion specialties as New Zealand sautéed green mussels, U.S. filet mignon with wild mushroom sauce, or blackened ahi tuna with Cajun spices.

We dined on dessert, listened to live music and basked in the romantic setting sitting al fresco in the lovely dimly lit courtyard. An amazing creme brulee and cognac made the night simply magical.
