One of the first restaurants to bring sophistication and refinement to a neighborhood best known for its wild and unrestricted spirit, Nina has an airy loftlike interior with high ceilings, exposed brick-and-alabaster walls, and dark hardwood floors. Waiters dressed in black serve the creative Mediterranean cuisine with an Eastern touch to a mostly young, hip crowd. Highlights include goat cheese milhojas (pastry puffs), glazed codfish with honey sauce, and venison
and mango in a mushroom sauce. There is a good weekday fixed-price lunch menu, and brunch is served on weekends.
