The Low Down


What to Drink: Besides an ever-increasing list of small-production wines offered by bottle and glass, there's also a list of specialty sparkling cocktails made with artisan ingredients like lemongrass and ginger, organic cucumber juice, and muddled mint.

Parking: Street parking is highly competitive--save time and use the affordable valet.

Where to Sit: Three booths against the far wall offer the most privacy and sound cushioning (unless one of them is hosting a particularly loud group), while the airy window tables take in the night view of Wilshire outside.
