If you’re searching for a night of upscale drinking and decadent dining, all signs point in the direction of Compass. Wine is the focus here, and the knowledgeable, if slightly pushy, staff can guide you toward a good bottle, though it might not hurt to bone up on your pronunciation should you want to impress a date when perusing this 250+ list. The sleek, chilly Euro lounge atmosphere is unremarkable, but the savory Creative American menu ($21-$38) is anything but; though the cost-conscious might opt to take advantage of the pre-theater or brunch offerings. If wine isn’t your thing, there’s a healthy selection of imported beers and cocktails. Just don’t blow your cork when the bill comes.
