This neighborhood haunt with its stylish maritime decor (it’s more vintage cool than seaside kitsch) is where locals come to hang out with “Restaurant Makeover” star Cherie Stinson. The TV celeb handles the dining room, which she decorated, while the kitchen sends out fresh-caught seafood plates inspired by global coastal spots from Normandy (moules frites) to Hawaii (ahi tuna poke), Portugal (house-cured sardine crostinis), and New England (clam chowder). This 52-seat spot is unpretentious, fun, and laidback.
