Considering dinner there Sunday evening after a show, particularly becuase the bar's open all day and we'll have an hour or so to kill before the restaurant opens.

I've read several posts about it and it sounds solid, and the neighborhood ambiance is appealling. They'll be four of us. We're not looking for fancy, just good quality reasonably priced food.

But I'm wondering about the dining room. Is it just an extenstion of the bar or separate, and is it quiet enough to have a liesurely dinner and be able to hear one another? And I know they have great beer, but do they have a decent wine selection?

Would a la Lucia be a better choice?

TIA
