Sonny's looks pretty unassuming from the outside, kind of dive-y even, but when you walk in, it's actually got a great atmosphere. It's casual, but well-designed and a little hipster-rustic. Sonny's is the place to go with a couple of friends so that you can...More

On second visit to Sonny's in last 6 months (less crowded on Sat than Thurs night?) we again sat at the bar and enjoyed great service/conversation with the friendly bartenders, Analise and Shanti. Shanti likes making the magical Smoked Manhattan which is fun to observe...More

If you're up for more than just an everyday Burger and Chicken Wings, this is the place to go. Have a look at their menu on the website.

This restaurant looks unassuming from the outside, but when you taste the food and first class cocktails you will be amazed. I highly recommend the "Bees Knees" cocktail and the deviled eggs as an appetizer (provided that it isn't sold out because they are insanely...More
