Fodor's Expert Review West Side Lounge
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Understated is the buzzword at this relaxed but suave bistro, where the food is as comfortable as the setting. A homey, rotating menu complements the room's burgundy tones and cushy seating. The crispy truffle fries are a justified hit—they all but fly out of the kitchen—and the black-pepper mussels release an aromatic cloud of steam when they arrive. Couples on first dates and groups of regulars gather nightly for the well-priced specials and signature cocktails that change with the seasons. Brunch is served Sunday.
