Hypermodern lounge that really does serve vodka martinis at the eponymous temperature (we measured), and has quite a bit of good food: Peruvian ceviche, caramelized onion and asiago pizza, sea scallops and Brussels sprouts, an excellent wild mushroom risotto. For dessert, the best seems to be the brownie sundae. Amusingly weird bathroom design, too. Dress nicely and be careful with your food. The one great advantage of a martini over a glass of red wine is if you spill it.
Insider's Tip: Sip seasonal drinks like the Caramel Apple ($11.50) and the Cranberry Sour ($10.50).
