The second location of benjy's is quieter than you'd expect for its Washington Avenue location, without any of the hassle of forced valet or clubby music throbbing in the dining room. Its chic, elegant look is mimicked in the menu, which is full of locally sourced food in Asian-influenced dishes that run the gamut from beef udon to daily sashimi specials. Save room for dessert in the form of its wonderfully geeky beer list and structured cocktails.
