GO HERE: for chef Nick Perkins’ down-to-earth but beautiful Mediterranean-leaning food. He does wonders with fish and local vegetables, making you question how food so simple could be so dang good.
ORDER THE: crazy-tasty clam toast, with pooling broth beneath She Wolf sourdough bread and pile of bivalves; the lamb burger (with anchovies, even if those aren’t usually your thing); some olive oil cake to finish the night.
THE VIBE IS: EXTRA cozy. With only 30 seats, including a big communal table, you’re sitting close to your neighbors—in a good way. A backlit five-seat bar with a window into the small no-gas kitchen is the centerpiece of the minimally decorated space.
THE WINE: is curated by beverage director and manager Nialls Fallon. It’s all natural and always changing. Feeling lost? Put yourself in his—or his staff’s—hands.
GETTING IN: really depends on the night, but they take pains to be as accommodating as possible. Plus, they take reservations—plan ahead if you can.
