WHY Chic elegance in a neighborhood more known for casual bistros. Check out the lobster bake on Wednesdays.
WHAT Now that the cocktail-lounge action has moved out back to the adjacent Rockwell VT, Vermont is more about the dining experience. Stephane Beaucamp’s food is as elegant as the space: warm Medjool date salad, prime flat-iron steak with black peppercorn sauce, crispy whitefish with a watercress-basil sauce. A lovely date-night destination that’s not cheap but not as expensive as it could get away with being—especially on Sundays and Mondays, when a three-course dinner is just $28.
WHO A tastefully beautiful gay and straight crowd—if they’ve had work done, you’d never be able to tell.
