The food served in this inviting Southeast dining room is sure to satisfy any hunger for both sustenance and sophistication. Variations on classic Mediterranean dishes are rendered successfully, such as a tagine spiked with currants and served over a bed of fluffy couscous, or a velvety daube à la Provençale—beef that’s been braised for hours in red wine and served in its own juices—alongside rich fried polenta, or a crock of Greek-inspired roasted shrimp, tomatoes, and feta spiked with just the right amount of ouzo. The atmosphere is equally soothing. A fiery, blue-tiled pizza oven beckons from behind the dark wooden chef’s counter, as do cozy banquettes and a bustling bar. And the soft murmur of diners’ conversations floating up to the soaring rafters offers calming, but not distracting, background noise for those quieter moments between bites.
