Although the downstairs lounge seems to be the main draw—comedy shows, live music and renowned DJs (Krock’s Liquid Todd spins electronica every Saturday into the wee hours)—the kitchen turns out surprisingly tasty, albeit unadventurous, grub. Mussels swimming in white wine and garlic, and lobster ravioli in spinach cream sauce keep the dining room full of neighborhood regulars. On hot Monday nights, the sidewalks are crowded with plastic-bibbed locals going mallet-to-fork with platters of all-you-can-eat blue crabs.
