While the restaurant-inside-a-hotel rarely works out well, The Exchange is, so far, an exception. The Israeli-leaning spot is trying a little too hard to get you to point your phone at it (the crochet coasters and giant light fixtures that look like cubby houses are a lot), but that hasn’t stopped a mix of creative downtown people, office-workers, and tourists staying in the hotel from hanging out here at all hours of the day. Lunch involves the best tuna sandwich we’ve ever had, and should definitely be accompanied by a couple of dips and salads. Come here for an actually-cool business lunch or a dinner of everything from burgers to chraime, a North African fish stew.
