Let forget about Restaurant Week for a few minutes. For once the masses have cleared, I head back to my favorite, small, intimate venues. I look for spaces with hushed tones, unobtrusive service and memorable food that isn’t so heavy that the valet has to wheel you out. (Tramontana in Preston Center and Sardines in Fort Worth spring to mind.) Nero’s (R.I.P.) was a great, relatively inexpensive setting that had a lot of sex appeal.
While some big-name restaurants hire expensive teams of designers to create a sexy setting, other restaurants achieve sexiness by default–perhaps they’ve been open for a long time and the sexiness comes from familiarity. Maybe it’s the lighting or the color of a wall. Whatever it is, let’s try to put into words what makes a restaurant sexy.
