The upstairs of UpStairs is the fancy dining room, an enchanting fantasy of Alice in Wonderland as illustrated by Klimt. Wear your shiny clothes! The food is French, Italian, and American nouvelle by turns, and some of the simple things, like the rib-eye steak, are as great as the tricky ones, like cold basil-zucchini soup. Oddball wines, too.
