Sambuca Restaurant Review: Anchored in the historic Rice Lofts, this ultra-cool spot swings with animal print upholstery, funky sculpture suspended from the ceiling, and curvy banquettes reminiscent of the supper clubs of the 1930s and 1940s. Sambuca offers live music nightly, but you have to eat if you're going to listen to the music, so consider the small plates menu with tasty bites like the goat cheese-stuffed artichokes and shrimp and crab dip. Entrées, such as soups and salads, pizzas and pasta dishes, are ordinary, but we do like the lobster enchiladas as well as the steaks, which are thick and hearty.
