I wondered in here one night when I was celebrating my promotion. I thought it was perfect. I love the decadent red velvety decoration that miraculously comes off as being in good taste rather than tacky. The place tries to bring french wines to American palates. But, they compromise and offer beer and wine derived cocktails too. A great place for a rainy afternoon, especially nice if you come with someone who cares to weigh in on Paul Krugman’s latest NYTs article and the general malaise of capitalistic society.
