Walking into Bar 36, you don't know whether to order a drink or duck and cover. The design, at places, seems to have been implemented by a hurricane: There's a swirling, deconstructed boardwalk flying below the ceiling, and in the rear dining area, patches of grass are stuck to the wall. (How on earth do you water that?) As is the case in all heavy-storm situations, the proper response is to get good and tight. The bar grudgingly obliges, with a menu heavy on adulterated coffees and fruit-inflected martinis with names like "French Kiss" and "Bar 36 Kiss. Food wanders between Mediterranean fare, such as a mezze sampler and shrimp with chickpeas and feta, and less-expected Southern dishes, like a chicken breast with pecans, peaches and brandy. Stay a while and you're likely to hear people speaking in three or four foreign languages, probably all wondering what's up with the wall turf.
