Hip vibe and great atmosphere.
Went here for dinner with a friend after work on a weeknight. The place was bustling with mostly young professionals grabbing drinks and a bite to eat after work. It has a slick, modern aesthetic and the menu has something for everyone - even a wide range of sushi options. Our waiter was a character and overall it was a great experience. Definitely order dessert - the cheesecake brownie is delish.
Funky place, good food, great atmosphere.
Barracks Row is not a fancy area, but has some decent restaurants. Jordan's 8 is a high-class but informal hang-out with good prices and really good food. We were there on a weekday evening. It was full, but with a vivacious crowd, seemingly mostly professionals or government workers. We had steak, which was excellent quality. We should have asked for a little less sauce, but that was a minor matters. Everything came on time, and was fresh.
