Where to sip, eat, and shop like a local
Stop by Durant’s, a 1950s steakhouse, for a classic gin martini (it goes best with oysters Rockefeller). Dead-on details like red flocked wallpaper, vintage booths, and bow-tied servers take you back in time as you dig into filet mignon or double-cut lamb chops.
Insider tip: Regulars enter from the back, through the kitchen ― not from the street.
