It's a smooth ride at Odea, the luxuriously under-lit lounge and eatery in Little Italy. The sleek, black interior of exposed brick and wooden beams (with gilded mirrors on the walls and roman busts around the bar) has a soothing effect, especially coupled with a sweet strawberry mojito. The crowd is casually well-dressed, and the lax door policy is, well, just great. Odea manages to attract those "cool" enough to get into places more exclusive, but clearly not interested in the hassle of a line or cover. Towards the back are elevated enclaves with couches and pillows that are available for private parties. Order from the late-night menu and nibble while you drink. So what is disappointing about Odea? Not much.Extra
