The Low Down


Where to Sit: Larger groups can reserve the patio in the smaller downstairs back room, or in the upstairs alcove ideal for one long table.

What to Drink: A prodigious wine list offers some hard-to-find labels from France, Spain, Italy and the New World; one top feature is the off-menu half-glass pour for half the price, which allows for experimentation or a perfect pairing with every dish.

Parking: Street parking isn't easy along this stretch--your best bet is the $5.50 valet.
