The lowdown

Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar, bears the telltale marks of its owners, Bruce and Eric Bromberg: obsessive carpentry, with white-oak shelving and paneling, plus a marble bar and French-limestone floor. Customers can sip a broad selection of wines, beers, and liquors, while nibbling on Marcona almonds, chicken liver paté, or octopus conserva in olive oil.
