What to Drink: The gorgeous bar, crafted from African teakwood, is worth a separate visit as much for its congeniality as its great draft and bottled beer choices from Ireland, Britain, Belgium and various American microbreweries.

When to Go: On weekend nights, live performers at the lounge piano provide musical accompaniment to second floor dining.

Where to Sit: For a romantic dining experience, ask to be seated in the serene window-filled west room on the second floor.
