The Low Down


Parking: Valet parking is available on the Cole side of the restaurant, but street spots can usually be found in the neighborhood.

Where to Sit: The main room is the epicenter of the action, but can get loud on busy nights--request seating in the patio room for a more intimate experience. Don't get relegated to the small, remote alcove behind the bar.

What to Drink: The by-the-glass wine selection is generous. Try the $40 Domaine Vrignaud Chablis 2002, great for multi-fish pairings. Corkage is $15.
