Based in an elegant ground-floor room in a vintage downtown building, Pete's has completely classic bar-cafe-grill good looks. There's also a hint of contemporary clubbiness. The food is a functional, midpriced take on New American cooking: mac and cheese, a gilded burger (fontina, tomato aioli), steaks, bread pudding, and, when available, a fresh tomato soup that seems to sing, optimistically, of summer. A house specialty, blue-cheese fries, is sinful, potatoes tossed hot with the sharp salty cheese so they're limp yet crisp and chewy: irresistible.
