This roadhouse-chic restaurant and late-night hangout was designed by Oprah's sidekick, Nate Berkus. The buzzing upstairs bar area is where clean-cut professionals in their 20s and 30s go to flirt or catch up with friends -- there are some pool tables, but posing attractively seems to be the main recreational activity here. Expect to be among the nose-pressers cooling your heels outside if you don't arrive early enough.

Good food as always and came quicker than anticipated. But they forgot the peanuts on my salad.
