A cozy watering hole where the decibel levels remain within a comfortable range. This place was once a terrific hideout, ideal for a secret rendezvous, but it's more crowded nowadays.

Food isn't the main attraction, but despite its nondescript appearance, the homemade chicken liver pate was surprisingly flawless _ as creamy and fresh-tasting as can be expected.

We used lots of bread to mop up the addictive brown sauce that blanketed these brandy-seasoned beef balls. Alas, the sauce proved tastier than the chewy meat.

Skip the lamb chops. Too tough and gamy to recommend.

Sommelier's wine selection is satisfactory. We enjoyed the reasonably priced Trewa Cabernet Sauvignon (Chile) & Villa Chiara Pinot Grigio (Italy).
