Metro chef Ana Sporer converted this charming 19th-century hotel into a thriving hot spot for seasonal American fare. We like the Oriental salmon, and the grilled rib eye with caramelized mashed potatoes and hazelnut butter. Snack on coconut and cranberry tarts in the cozy bistro and cafe -- which features an Art Deco bar and live entertainment on Saturday nights -- or venture upstairs to enjoy local artists' works in the BFA Gallery. Dinner Thursday through Saturday.
