The boys once ruled this venerable, upscale roost—house rules prohibited unescorted women from sitting at the bar. Today, under owner Rose Parrotta, anyone is free to relax at the handsome rosewood bar accented by brass lanterns. Those seeking more privacy may wish to enjoy a cocktail at one of the cozy booths. In either case, be sure to sample a well-prepared dish from the ever-changing blackboard menu—choices might include a classic Caesar salad, a deluxe burger
with fries, or scrambled eggs and caviar.
