The sprawling outdoor patio at Cávo may be off-limits in the colder months, but the cavernous restaurant and lounge has plenty of off-season draws. On any given night diners might be treated to traditional Greek music (Wednesdays at 8:30pm), flamenco (Thursdays at 7:30pm) or a gyrating belly dancer (Sundays at 8:30pm), as well as an ever-present DJ. Take some time to focus on the food as well: Outstanding starters include calamari stuffed with a seafood-lobster risotto, and an herb-crusted rack of lamb is roll-your-eyes delicious.
