This classy restaurant moonlights as a bar and nightclub, catering to all walks of life. Try the espresso martini, the mango lassi, or any of the 200 bottle wines on hand. Every Tues at 9 pm, the club hosts “a video music extravaganza” of campy showtune singalongs. On Thurs, bring your iPod loaded with a labeled playlist for the chance to be DJ for the night. DJs spin until 2 am on Fri and Sat. Kitchen open until 10 pm.
Insider's Tip: Taking his inspiration from a Puerto Rican cordial, owner Brian Piccini grinds and ferments raw pistachio nuts to create a homemade liqueur that is the foundation for the Pistachio Ponche ($8). It may be an arduous task, but this labor of love results in a nutty smoothness. Shaken with vanilla vodka, a Dutch-chocolate liqueur, and a splash of amaretto, this Ponche packs the sweetest punch in town.
