Sonny’s is one of those spots that’s equally good to roll into for a few $6 Manhattans during happy hour at the bar as it is for a sexy Saturday date night in the restaurant area. The whole place has that old Hollywood thing going for it, and while it’s a touch put-on, it grows on you because nobody here is taking it that seriously. The American-ish food menu is solid and full of things you’ll recognize, the atmosphere is generally far more subdued than other spots in neighborhood, and they do an entire tiki drink takeover at the bar on Tuesdays.
