In the Mood for a Melody?
- There aren’t many places that offer live piano these days, but visitors here are in for a musical treat most nights of the week. On Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, diners enjoy tunes from former White House pianist Bob Smith. On Thursdays, things get a little wilder when pianist Pat Rohrer shares the limelight with anyone who wants to accompany her by singing along. She starts at 8pm and takes requests.
- One of our favorite things about Old Town is its marriage of Colonial charm and modern niceties, and the Grille at Morrison House doesn’t disappoint in this regard. The romantic double staircase surrounding a fountain out front is the first tip off of the refinement inside. Indeed, elegant moldings, bold orange walls and opulent artwork and light fixtures will impress any dining companion, from dates to bosses to future in-laws.

·While the leather-bound wine list has plenty to recommend in it, wine buyer Rosen Ivanov knows how to make cleverly crafted cocktails, too. Start off with the intensely pear-flavored Grill Anjou Cocktail, a mix of pear vodka, muddled pair, lime juice, sage and ginger ale, or the Sweet Thyme, a combo of gin, thyme syrup, lemon juice, frothy egg white and a splash of club soda -- which tastes like creamy pineapple juice.
