This is where we want to be taken on date nights. Every time. The entrance is tucked away down a side alley, which you wouldn’t notice except for the flickering candlelight in the tropical courtyard beyond, which catches your eye.

We can’t decide if this bistro-bar has a more impressive food menu or cocktail program. We can’t stop drinking their Life of a Surfboard (High West Double Rye, spiced pineapple syrup, Lillet Blanc, Cocchi Torino, lemon and Bittermans Tiki Bitters) and we’re actually willing to fight people for the Wagyu beef brisket. We don’t even want to tell you about the pan-fried pork shoulder.

It’s stunning in here too, and as an 18th Century carriage house pretty damn historic. The romantic outdoor seating is full of foliage (and one of the oldest walls in the city), and indoors the copper bar dominates. After hours whisky shots get things going, but during dinner it’s nicely buzzing. The service is impeccable throughout. In short, this place is killing it on every level.
