On weeknights, the candlelit dining area hosts the usual alpha pack. On weekends, however, it works its magic on couples sharing cozy banquettes near the room’s centerpiece, a see-through wine cellar. Starters are made for swapping bites: The house-made garganelli is loaded with lobster chunks, rock shrimp and smoked bacon. For a lighter touch, order the mustard-studded salmon tartare. Move on to any of the five cuts of dry-aged steaks; you can mix and match crusts and sauces (try Maker’s Mark bourbon sauce with your rib eye). There’s no reason to go sober into that good night: Finish with an espresso martini or one of the Pie-Tinis—drinks that taste like their dessert counterparts.
