This attractive American restaurant is a welcome hangout in the financial district. The main dining space is narrow and loungelike, with exposed brick, chandeliers, plush white leather banquettes, and a handsome wooden bar with hanging bulbs overhead. In warmer months, a huge front patio with black wrought-iron tables and white umbrellas fills up with office associates and couples chatting over the din booming from inside. Drinkers don’t seem too interested in a gourmet experience, though small plates like lobster macaroni and cheese and tender lamb chops are tasty options. The full menu offers more extremes: Simple grilled chicken over a bed of arugula lacks flavor, but the burger with fries, or the namesake sandwich with filet mignon and a fried egg are both very satisfying. Lunchtime offers a cafeteria-like setting in an adjoining space, with salads, pastas, and more sandwiches. Surprisingly, desserts, like the crepe with bananas and Nutella, are quite good.Kitchen Hours
