Scenesters venture into this historic space in the lower level of a former bank to soak up the quirky decor (safe-deposit boxes and other remnants date from the 1920s) and gastropubby food from chef Mark Steuer (also behind Carriage House). Steuer keeps it simple and seasonal with dishes like grilled pork chops over a sweet potato and brussels sprout hash, and sates late-night appetites with a solid burger. None of it quite compares with his work down the street at Carriage House, but a cocktail in a classy vintage bank vault is a nice way to start (or end) the night.
