If you're the type of person who avoids restaurants with slick retro decor and small portions, set your fears aside and try meeting friends for drinks and appetizers at Habit Lounge. Yes, the design scheme might be described as an icily ironic rendition of a '70s rec room. And, yes, wait staff and customers have been spotted wearing studiously ugly outfits (your basic Main Street hipster look). But the food is innovative without sacrificing taste and the staff is genuinely friendly. Amazing.
