Set in a beautifully restored Victorian, All Spice feels like the most exquisite home in town. Each brightly colored room is set with fine linens, as large windows usher in light. It's a magical setting for a date, among a happy crowd that never seems too serious. Chef Sachin Chopra and wife, Shoshana Wolff, have created a "New American Exotic" cuisine with ingredients from around the globe. It may sound terribly conceptual, but fits the unique dining experience to a tee. International tastes are on display with "tandoori" octopus set over a streak of earthy lentil purée with an Indian-spiced chickpea salad dressed in yogurt. Finish with tropical desserts like the spectacular coconut-pandan jellyroll cake, or cardamom kulfi with smooth dark chocolate.
