A jeans-and-sneakers art crowd settles comfortably into Eames chairs and George Nelson couches at this convivial restaurant-lounge. In the pint-size front room, everything from classic rock to funk plays at a volume low enough that you won’t have to yell to be heard. The cocktail list is enormous—and inspired. The seafood-centric offerings make great snacks, but if your appetite is too small for the luscious lobster roll, try an oyster shooter with Vox vodka instead.
