The Low Down


Where to Sit: Weekend tables can take more than a week to reserve, but you may have better luck with dinner seating at the bar, which is near the cozy, wood-burning oven.

Save Money: One of the nicest features of the massive wine list is the large selection (1,500 varieties) of half bottles.

The Extras: Try an eight-course tasting menu for $85. No wine pairings available, though.
