A gorgeous chandelier, lizard-skin banquettes and plush retro booths underline the 1940s inspiration behind this AvroKO-designed tri-level restaurant. The decor, however, does not steal the show: Chris Santos (Suba, Wyanoka) turns out 40 wildly inventive shareable plates, like a French-onion soup that comes in dumpling form and red-snapper tacos lavished with fiery mango-and-avocado salsa. Don’t be deterred by the wait—you’ll get in…eventually.

If you've ever been out and wanted to order 3-6 things off the menu and couldn't because it's a full size meal this is the place for you. The french onion soup dumplings are my absolute favorite, not a huge fan of the butternut squash ravioli, a definite yes for the goat cheese perogies and the sliders. 

Another plus is it's relatively easy to get a reservation for a weekend night and the waiters are super friendly.
