The ill-fated Les Deux has reemerged as three distinctive spaces. The parlor bar in front has a muted, clubby feel; the middle room, anchored by a large square bar, is more raucous; and the spacious back patio with high glass ceilings is for dining and lingering. Wherever you plop down, you can order from the menu that Mark Gold helped create and includes the famous fried chicken from his restaurant, Eva. Good tip: Craving a more traditional meal? You’re next door to Miceli’s, the red-sauce-Italian institution. » 1638 N. Las Palmas Ave., sadiela.com.
