    The much-lauded Sunday Suppers ($45 per head) are still the best bargain here.

    A relaxed setting with great food. Must sit in the enclosed patio, where the breeze fills the walls. The Alaskan cod or lamb are great picks. -Julie Kwon, Launch My Line

    Entourage happened here. Could this be where Eric and Sloan first fell in love? Could you blame them with this ambience?

    Order any one of speciality drinks at the bar, take a seat by the fireplace, and get ready for a culinary joyride along the Mediterranean. Let Suzanne do the driving and order the tasting menu.
