From the rows of slatted banquettes to the clip light used at the reception desk, everything in this hotel restaurant is effortlessly chic, mining glamor out of the familiar trappings of institutional style. Under the direction of chef Grae Nonas, the menu works much the same way. What could have been a workaday chicken schnitzel sheds is made remarkable with the caramel murk of a black garlic chimichurri. And a humble vaquero bean dip, served with snappy sesame crackers, improbably feels luxe.
