The lowdown

Ever since we tasted chef-owner Jeremy Marshall’s inspired falafel-crusted salmon, the notion of a naked pink fillet has been tough to swallow. But despite the high level of cooking, an offbeat and well-priced wine list, and unexpected grace notes like a welcoming amuse-bouche and complementary petits fours, it’s still a rollicking neighborhood spot, where you can park yourself at the lively bar and watch the dexterous oyster shucker in action.
