Sit at the counter

I eat out alone sometimes and sitting at the counter at Cooks can be like sitting at the captains table at Canyon Ranch

Cook is the the best. The decor is perfectly contemporary but still warm. The menu seems to have something for every mood without being overwhelming. Each dish is perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The service is charming but not overpowering.
