An oldie but a goodie and a little sceney, but still fun.  My favorites include the roasted bone marrow toast, kale & apple salad, thai style deep-fried shrimp, chicken meatballs, and doughnuts for dessert.  For ladies, you can get free champagne in the downstairs bathroom if you bring your ID.  Try Nitecap for a drink after.
