I like this for two reasons: The diplomat in me enjoys a menu that's broad enough to please a variety of palates, which Charivari can certainly do. You'll find everything from spectacular rib eye steaks — dry-aged for 20 days in-house — to Italian classics like tender, housemade bucatini in bolognese. Read more in this week's cafe review.
