The bar at Wolfgang Puck’s Asian fusion restaurant leaves a lasting impression. With floor-to-ceiling windows, low-slung leather chairs and couches, and a two-story glass wine rack, it’s formal without being stuffy—a great place to bring a date. The excellent small-plates menu includes prime-beef sliders and lollipop-shaped crispy chicken wings that are so good you’ll be licking your fingers; weekdays from 4 to 6, you can get any three items for $20.
