This jovial spot is the ultimate hipster family restaurant. The room is filled with reclaimed curios, but the space is large, the music is mercifully low and the crowd is a mix of ­flannel-clad ­­­­30-somethings and toddlers. Cooks sport pointy paper hats and bow ties while prepping the trendy bistro menu. The hulking rib-eye looks like it spent a day at the beach, with its sea salt and pepper crust, but there are too many grisly bits. Sides make the meal, especially an addictive butternut squash–gorgonzola gratin. Closed Sunday and Monday.
