Cuisine: Eclectic American cooking that seduces with its sense of fun and whimsy but wins with its seriousness and execution.
Mood: Equal parts urban warehouse and boho nightspot. Every detail—bustling open kitchen, DayGlo-pink pillows, flashing movies—speaks to dinner as theater.
Best for: Diners who don’t want to drive downtown for big-city dining.
Best dishes: Asian-style pork riblets; miniature Elvis burgers with pimiento cheese; mixed-greens salad with warm Camembert; “nostalgia plates” that have included skillet-fried chicken and house-made German sausage and sauerkraut; roasted duck breast with red-wine glaze.
Insider tips: Co-owner and passionate oenophile Patrick Higgins has put together a surprisingly good list of Rhône reds and also offers a deal on several high-priced wines.
Open Monday through Saturday for dinner, Sunday for brunch and dinner. Moderate.
