Warm up with brunch before you drop your pants on the subway....
Catch Sunday brunch, or live jazz seven nights a week. A fire crackles on the hearth, the staff is friendly, and several bespectacled moose heads add a quirky touch. Maybe the older crowd favors the music that's quiet enough to talk over, or the moderate prices. The steak was juicy and cooked as requested and the baked potato was standard.
