Fodor's Expert Review Simple Snack Sympathique

$$ Lower Town Eclectic

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Throngs of professionals and young urbanites pack restaurant Simple Snack Sympathique (SSS)—a name that sounds more "quick bite" than elegant restaurant—to dine on artfully prepared dishes, from angel hair pasta with succulent duck confit to tender ribs served alongside crispy fries. It's a chic place to be on Saturday night. Two distinct dining areas let patrons choose between sass and sophistication; one features high tables, "mouthy" wallpaper, and techno music. Just through the curtain is a more relaxed space with a flickering fireplace and exposed brick wall. Come for lunch (weekdays only) or dinner, which runs until 10:30.
