Inspired by owner Mike Benson’s affinity for flying and the works of French author-pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Café Saint-Ex is a neighborhood bistro with an understated aviation theme. In addition to a vintage Art Deco bar, the interior is adorned with black-and-white photographs of pilots, clocks announcing international times, and a propeller from a World War I biplane flown by Mike’s grandfather. Created by chef Billy Klein, the inventive New American menu features dishes such as sweet corn croquettes and Wagyu strip loin with sweet potato purée. Downstairs, the Gate 54 lounge hosts live DJ’s five nights a week.
