We couldn't figure out where to go. We wanted comfortable & unpretentious. Where to go?
- Zaytinya - we ended up ordering a few meze, dessert (gorgeous apricot!). Outside, breezy, and felt just wonderful after Moet & Chandon White Star & an apricot & orange blossom water-tini. Took the edge off of the seared octopus special that came with the suction cups still on (the suction cups gave us a little pause, but it tasted absolutely amazing).
- Indebleu - hadn't been yet. Sleek decor, interesting, almost strange, crowd. No pretention whatsoever, despite their attmpt to create "door buzz" ("I have to let some people out before I let anyone else in," says the Gesichtskontrol at the door.) If you take a look at the site, look for the "Moonbounce"-emulating seating.
- Coyote Ugly - amusing, and a bit disappointing. Unabashedly unstylish.
