Top Chef winner Elan Hall has created a clean, industrial, effortlessly cool space inside the old Alexandria Hotel in which to showcase his critically acclaimed Scottish-Jewish fusion food offerings. (The place is named after the neighborhood in Glasgow where his parents grew up.) Most nights, the white-walled box of a room is filled with hip foodie types, but often, the atmosphere gets turned upside-down depending on what's going on in the building (The Mezz bar is upstairs) or downtown itself (good luck getting a table on Art Walk Thursday nights). Even if it is crowded, the front bar offers its own pleasures: chatty bartenders, a nice view of the room and Hall playing around in his open kitchen, and an array of eclectic drink options (try the Desperate Housewife). Occasional live music.
