The Low Down


What to Drink: The two-story wine selection is first-rate. The cafe serves 3-ounce pours of specially selected reds and whites, and the beer case offers hard-to-find labels from around the world.

The Extras: Seasonal catering specials like "wild harvest at your home" includes choices such as rabbit terrine, beef Wellington, roasted guinea hen and pomegranate pecan stuffing.

When to Go: Get there early for lunch--peak hours can be crowded, and there are only 10 first-come, first-served tables.
