    For spicy cocktails, Shush >> Cornelia. Scallops are excellent and I don't even like scallops. Skip the tuna tartare: too much sesame oil.

    Get your girl or boy, start with a cocktail, advance to a bottle of wine and be happy... You're in one of these little spots that made you be in love with the village.

    The Stockholm syndrome cocktail is amazing - citrusy, not sweet, kind of savory. The waitress called it funky lemonade

    So happy to find this gem! The cocktails are perfectly balanced. Ask the bartender to surprise you with an off the menu drink. Have to come back for the food.

    Small spot with an even tinier kitchen. Make reservations for dinner or hope to get lucky for one of the four seats at the bar. Get the New Fashioned cocktail (includes maple syrup).

    Ask Xavier for his 'off the menu' cocktails once you have tried most of the ones on the menu. He will not disappoint.

    Xavier is a gem. Ask him for a cocktail reco and you can't go wrong. Do the prix fixe and you'll be stuffed. Don't miss the barley risotto, which is much lighter than a normal risotto. Sit outside.

    Tapas. The mixologist made me one of the best drinks EVER here. I have no idea what it was, but it was spicy and incredible. Small spot, will be more difficult with large groups.

    If you're having dinner, the lobster dish is great. Get a chèvre course to start and a taste from the raw bar. The waiters had good recs so I'd recommend enlisting their help too.

    “The cocktail list is heavy on brand names & obscure ingredients (bergamot juice, allspice dram) & inevitably requires smartphone-assisted navigation, yet the resulting creations are often one-note.” Read more
