Fodor's Review

This neighborhood institution is known for great martinis, microbrews on tap, and upscale pub food. There's no placard bearing its name; just look for the martini sign (or the crowd waiting for a dinner table) to know you're there. Note that this is a bar for drinking and socializing, but there's no entertainment here.
