The Low Down


Know Before You Go: The room is small and fills up quickly, so be sure to make reservations or avoid going during peak hours, unless you don't mind waiting up to an hour for a table.

Save Money: On Monday nights, all bottles of wine are half-price; and on Tuesdays, get a three-course dinner for $22.
