NoPa Kitchen + Bar
Exotic spots like Rasika and Bombay Club are what put Ashok Bajaj on the map, but his foray into more traditional brasserie fare is what may put a whole new neighborhood on the map. NoPa means "North of Pennsylvania", and it also means splitting the old Zola space between a dining room fitted w/ red leather banquettes, and a lounge w/ a zinc-topped bar. Sweet breakfast treats, like peaches 'n cream-fueled biscuits, and savory bites -- butter-basted eggs -- are the MO here. Best of all, though, might be the more than 10 brunch- or any-time drinks.
