Old Town Bistro
Depending on when you arrive at Old Town Bistro, you may think you've reached two completely different venues. During the week, chef David Ortiz and his staff serve up steaks, salads, and pastas. Prizing eclecticism over any particular type of cuisine, house specialties include fish and chips platters with house-cut fries and barbecue sandwiches loaded with pork shoulder that's been smoked for 24 hours.
On the weekend, the eatery transforms into a dance club with a thundering 10,000-watt sound system. Local DJs test the limits of eight house subwoofers, spinning tracks synched to videos on 10 flat screens. The sprawling dance floor keeps dancers in motion beneath a colorful swirl of disco lights as opposed to a colander taped on a spotlight
