Swanky and chic, Zola channels a 1940s vibe with its snug banquettes, oval bar carts, and dramatic red flourishes. Food is fun without being over-the-top, and the best dishes hew to the Southern bent that first characterized its kitchen. Try the brown butter trout with charred arugula or the hay-smoked venison, a touch of farm-to-table flair that shines through the upscale setting. Dessert is also a standout, with an Irish stout sundae and cooling lychee soup tops on the
list. A new happy-hour menu also offers affordable small bites after 9:30pm—perfect for hungry theatergoers leaving a show.
