This intimate little spot got its start as a jazz club when it opened up in 1977, but later transformed into the cozy, romantic restaurant it is today. The menu consists of French and Italian dishes, plus a stunning array of wines. The lighting is dim, the atmosphere is old school, and there's often live music.
