The Low Down


Save Money: For $25, enjoy a five-course collection of Gale Gand's desserts (available Monday-Thursday after 9:30pm, Friday-Saturday after 10:30pm).

Know Before You Go: Choose from a three-course prix-fixe menu ($80), six-course vegetable ($90) or seven-course grand ($100) collection, plus an eight-course Chef Tramonto's Collection ($135).

What to Drink: More than 1,000 wines are featured; two sommeliers can make recommendations.

Parking: Valet parking is available for $12. Downtown metered parking is very hard to come by and lots can be pricey.

Know Before You Go: With seating for only 22 (and no place to wait), reservations are strongly recommended.

The Extras: Private dining options include a party room for up to 36, a semi-private salon for 11, and the chef's table in the kitchen for up to six.

Look Good: Jackets are required for men.
