You want a trendy place with tiny portions, oversize plates, with a pretentious atmosphere, then try Serra in the Annex. With small glass tables, close together, the place serves Italian meals, very elegant and high-end cuisine at expensive prices. I had a pasta dish with tampanade and sauteed vegetables. Since I am on a low carboyhydrate diet, there was no problem since the portions were tiny. The bread was exquisite with different dips ranging from a spicy humus in a tiny little dipping bowl to a funky tapanade. The plates are oversize, the prices are ridiculous and the food is very very good. The pasta dish was fabulous, exploding with the aroma and flavour of olive oil, delicate herbs and spices, chunks of olives, garlic, tomatoes, artichokes, and grilled eggplant.
