Fodor's Review

A dark, intimate wine bar and restaurant with hardwood floors and rich banquette seating, Detente serves more than a dozen wines by the glass as well as numerous half bottles. Even if you're not much of an oenophile, it's worth a trip just for the innovative food, much of it from local farms and seafood purveyors. Start with a foie gras or tuna tartare, followed by such choice entrées as wild boar, local scallops, or grass-fed beef.
