The space here reminds us of a furniture store - there’s a large waiting area with a fireplace and couches that look staged - but you can forgive that once you’re seated and start eating. Nothing on the Mediterranean small-plates menu is bad, but it’s the vegetable dishes, like the roasted fennel served in a citrus broth with grapefruit and oranges, that stand out. Come here for date night, or to catch up with friends at the bar.

Suggested by our writers
Classy without being overly pretentious. Riccardo Trattoria is one of our favorite Italian restaurants around.
Arguably the best pizza in town. Spacca Napoli is doing Neapolitan pies the way they're meant to be done.
