Fading portraits and overstuffed furniture make the lobby lounge look like an antiques store, but this hotel restaurant's culinary sensibilities are thoroughly modern. The menu, which changes daily, consistently offers interesting seafood and vegetarian options. An exemplary entrée is the broiled striped bass with mussels and chives, a hearty but elegant take on classic Continental flavors. A vegetarian option might be beet and goat cheese ravioli draped in fragrant brown
butter. In good weather you can eat in the tranquil courtyard during first-come, first-serve breakfast hours or the tantalizing brunch—just don't skip the homemade doughnuts.
