I've been an avid fan of Charlie bird for quite some time now. I love taking guests from out of town or going for brunch on the weekend to people watch and read.
CB has a lively mix of people where dining with friends feels comfortable, it's romantic enough to bring a date and classy enough to bring your parents. Music gets louder as the evening progresses, if a quieter meal is what you seek dine early! Oh, and definitely make a reservation, it fills up quickly.
A bonus to note, help-yourself glass jars of individually wrapped Life Savers are in each restrooms. I come from a generation that adores Life Savers, this was an awesome surprise.
