The Low Down


The Extras: Although the ambiance is decidedly upscale, there is a kids' menu with options that would fall within any tyke's comfort zone: mac 'n' cheese, chicken fingers, a peanut butter and jam sandwich. There are even four "kiddie cocktails," including a Shirley Temple and house-made fruit punch.

What to Drink: In a somewhat confusing move, the cocktail list is broken down by type of glassware. Still, it demands attention: The Velvet Old Fashioned improves upon the classic whiskey drink with a float of Cointreau that imparts a slightly sweeter and more pronounced orange flavor.

Know Before You Go: Don't come here on a diet. While the menu does offer a fair number of salads and fish options, the restaurant's real specialty is the kind of rich, comforting food that demands abandoning all calorie-counting.
