Useful information


There’s always a crowd at this neighborhood standby, where friends, families, and chic couples congregate for drinks at the copper-topped bar. Flanked by organic groceries, indie bookstores and antique shops, its environs speak of peace, weaving a bohemian spell that captivates both regulars and rookies alike.
Seasonal Californian cooking with an Italian bent dominates this tavern's menu, and a "butcher block" of well-prepared charcuterie--like herb-flecked rabbit terrine wrapped in prosciutto--is a prudent way to start your meal. A touch of Calabrian chili adds welcoming heat to the combo of morels, Italian sausage, and sweet corn that sauce a bowl of al dente bucatini. For dessert, warm bread pudding with a coffee-chocolate sauce is utterly devourable.
