If it's good enough for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, it's good enough for us — and our readers too. This swanky eatery hosts celebrities on the regular, but don't think it's a stuffy, hoity-toity restaurant. The dishes are upscale and delicious, but you won't get turned away just because you're wearing a Pink Floyd shirt. Maybe that's the real beauty of this place.
