Chandeliers dangle from the high ceiling, fountains gurgle, and sleek couches offer respite under leafy trees in a light-bathed glass atrium. This elegant cafe sits inside a five-floor Restoration Hardware home-decor store. See the host for seats in the gorgeous main room, or grab an espresso or glass of wine that you can take up to the serene roof garden.
The cafe serves casual comfort food (mains $18 to $29) by the chef behind Doughnut Vault and Small Cheval. The Three Arts Club, which long occupied the century-old building, was a home for women in the 'three arts' of music, painting and drama.
