THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Le Passage Restaurant Review

: Le Passage is le hot. We are not sure if this is a restaurant posing as a nightclub or vice versa. Pity the poor chef, who has to wonder if his talent is wasted on the young and the breathless crowd that packs into this place practically every night. However, the crab cake is noteworthy. Other options include mini burgers and salads. Basically, the club is underground, which makes it all the more interesting. To get to the place you have to trod down a cobblestone alley and then deal with a narrow stairway, but it is worth the voyage just to check out the exotic destination. Don't miss checking out the Yow Bar (make your way through the warren of rooms and you will find it).
