Decor: The restaurant portion lightly mimics an outdoor scene, while the lounge is dark and thick with 1970s remnants (the familiar mirror tiles with gold flakes and loads of rust-red carpeting—which, in an innovative twist, is mounted on the walls!).

The wonderments: The art display resting on the piano, which features a statuette of Perseus (gripping Medusa's decapitated head) along with a couple photographs of Mr. D, who continues the head-in-hand trend with one of his own (a plaster rendering of a smiling, white-haired man).

The mysteries: The esoteric "Please, try harder" written in red cursive on the ladies' room mirror.

Possible interpretations: It's inspirational (a positive affirmation meant to improve your life), it's reprehensible (a "joke" imploring women to look better), it's a mystical message from the universe (a cosmic anagram, which reveals your spirit name as Shapely Retarder).

Happy hours: Daily 3–6 pm.
