The Low Down
Where to Sit: The bar is an ideal place to sample regional oysters, share appetizers, or order off the dinner menu. It's also good for walk-ins.
The Extras: When making reservations let them know if it's a birthday or anniversary, and they will print a personalized commemorative evening's menu to take home.
Look Good: The maitre d' can hook up diners with a free shuttle to the Music Center and Disney Hall--and the kitchen will time your dinner accordingly.
