: Choose from more than two dozen international wines either at the long wooden bar in the front room or on a sofa in the lounge. Then sink into the big red vinyl banquettes in the ivory-colored dining room or seek an umbrella-covered table in the garden. On cold days, try the roasted garlic soup with candied cloves or the roasted chicken with mashed potatoes. In warm weather, score a seat in the back garden and nibble on lighter fare, like the marinated yellowfin tuna with wasabi-mashed potatoes.
