Dining Guide


The exterior of this vintage cottage has been painted a deep aubergine; inside, it’s sleekly updated. While the name suggests late-night desserts and cocktails, don’t overlook the rest of the menu. Silken sweet-potato bisque was vibrantly spiced with Thai curry and red pepper. Seared salmon, though a bit too done, held our attention with a tangy red cabbage puree. An artfully plated roasted chicken breast adorned with crispy puffs of fried potatoes, sautéed maitake mushrooms, and a soulful truffle jus went far beyond the average chicken dinner. Sweets are a must, like the ricotta beignet (served with a small coffee-flavored panna cotta and a slice of crispy serrano ham). Cocktails are well balanced and cleverly named, and the short wine list offers intelligent selections.
