Gotahm Bar & Grill


One Star Wars geek claimed it was like “having a meal in the beautiful expanse of Cloud City” while others liken it to “the kind of place you see in movies and figure you could never afford.” In any case, the unobtrusive service proceeds like a dressed-down version of Swan Lake and makes even the poorest post-college grad feel like they’re someone. Oh yes, the seared yellow fin tuna melts in your mouth and the other dishes are served with downtown flair. The $19.95 prix fixed lunch is a major bargain and and you may even catch a glimpse of some celebrity or another (sans sunglasses) pretending like they’re just one of the locals. [MF]
