The Low Down
Where to Sit: If you're hosting to a group and want to impress, ask for the 6-top in the back of the main dining room. It's screened off from the rest of the room by a wooden trellis and surrounded by wall sconces and dark wood shelves lined with Champagne bottles. Very VIP.
When to Go: Friday and Saturday nights after about 9pm are prime for the eye-candy crowd, while those craving a more relaxed vibe (and a seat on the lush, ivy-lined back patio) should stick to the less packed post-work and dinner hours.
Look Good: This is not--I repeat, not--the place to skimp on polish or try out your wall imitation. This place is about being seen. Cocktail dresses, cleavage and stilettos are de rigueur for ladies, while the male contingent rocks tight T-shirts and designer jeans.
