Minibar is really anything but—and it has the Las Vegas nightclub vibe to prove it. Chef Stu Zirin tries to compensate for the lack of dining-room vibe with a menu of artful, upscale comfort food, but in Boystown, the food rarely comes first. Cocktailing and canoodling prevail as the primary focus of the crowd.
